Belgian Metabolomics Day
On Friday September 29th 2017 the Flanders and Wallony Metabolomics groups will organize a joint Belgian Metabolomics Day at ILVO Melle/Ghent. The main purpose of the meeting is to increase the interactions between the various groups active in the field of the metabolomics and to be better aware of each other capabilities and research interests. The presentations will focus on providing overviews of the research activities and the facilities. There will be ample time and space for poster presentations on individual ongoing research projects of PhDs and postdocs. We strongly encourage to bring a poster!

Participation is free of charge, thanks to the generous contribution of ELIXIR-BE. The programme is listed below.
