Fluxomics and Pathway Discovery

10:00

Edward DennisKeynote Presentation

Metabolomics and Fluxomics of Lipid Mediators in Activated Macrophages and Human Plasma
Edward Dennis, Professor/Director, University of California San Diego, United States of America

Application of lipidomic analysis to characterize cellular lipid signaling of Toll-like and purinergic receptors and their “synergy” in stimulated macrophages including analysis of eicosanoid fluxes and effects of supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids as models for inflammation and infection.

Coffee Break & Networking in Exhibition Hall

11:15

Fluxolipidomics of Fatty Acid Oxygenated Metabolites
Michel Lagarde, Professor, University of Lyon, France

Oxygenated metabolites from PUFA are very diverse and important bioactive molecules. However, their own metabolism arrests their activity or may allow the emerging of other functions. Cell phenotypes really depend on the life span of the bioactive intermediates and the expression of enzymes responsible for transforming these intermediates. Examples can be given starting from the essential fatty acids in mammals, i.e. within the omega-3 and -6 families. 


Clinical Applications of Metabolomics

11:45

Systems Biology Investigation of Acetaminophen-Induced Hepatotoxicity using Integrated Transcriptomics and Metabolomics
Patricia Noppinger, Lead Scientific Affairs, Metanomics Health, Germany

The combination of transcriptomic and metabolic profiling technologies provided insight into the pathways associated with acetaminophen-induced hepatotoxicity suggesting that hepatocyte necrosis results from a lack of energy or impaired energy production by mitochondria.

Building Tools for Biological Interpretation of Metabolomics Data
Alla Karnovsky, Assistant Professor, University of Michigan Medical School, United States of America

Recent progress in metabolomics has created an opportunity to advance our understanding of human disease. It also posed a number of bioinformatics challenges associated with data analysis and interpretation. I will describe several tools aimed at addressing these issues.

14:45

Tafazzin-Catalyzed Phospholipid-Lysophospholipid Transacylations: Self-Organization in a System of 105 Chemical Reactions
Michael Schlame, Associate Professor of Anesthesiology & Cell Biology, NYU Langone Medical Center, United States of America

Tafazzin is a mitochondrial enzyme that transfers fatty acids non-specifically from phospholipids to lysophospholipids. Here we present a mathematical approach to this unique enzymatic mechanism and show experimentally how tafazzin can produce highly specific molecular patterns in cardiolipin.

Towards in Situ Metabolic Profiling Using ToF-SIMS
Seetharaman Vaidyanathan, Lecturer, University of Sheffield, United Kingdom

We are developing secondary ion mass spectrometry imaging for in situ spatial metabolic profiling to capture contextual intra- and inter-cellular spatio-temporal metabolite localisations. The challenges of the current methodologies and its potential developmental scope will be discussed, in the context of other techniques currently available, including to our recent efforts at developing the technique.

16:30

Lipidomics as a Tool of Studying the Role of Membranes in the Heat Stress Management
Laszlo Vigh, Director, Hungarian Academy Of Sciences, Hungary

Modulations in membrane fluidity and/or microheterogeneity achieved either by mild, fever-type heat stress or membrane fluidizing agents result in highly specific alterations in membrane lipid composition and can contribute to the production of lipid mediators controlling the expression of stress protein molecular chaperones.

Diagnostic and Medical Applications

10:00

Stephen WhiteKeynote Presentation

Membrane Protein Folding and Assembly
Stephen White, Professor, University of California Irvine, United States of America

Several aspects of membrane protein (MP) folding will be discussed, including the structure and dynamics of fluid lipid bilayers, physical principles of protein folding and stability, and translocon-assisted MP folding.

10:30

Coffee Break & Networking in Exhibition Hall

11:15

Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Diagnosis by Means of Serum Metabolomics
Ainara Cano, Research Scientist, One Way Liver (OWL), Spain

Diagnosis of the early stages of nonalcoholic fatty-liver disease (NAFLD): steatosis and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. The pursuit of serum metabolic biomarkers by reverse ultra-performance liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS)

11:45

NMR-based Metabolomics: A Story of Blood, Sweat and Tears Urine
Clare Daykin, Research Consultant, University of Nottingham, United Kingdom

12:30

Lunch & Networking in Exhibition Hall

Poster Viewing Session

14:15

The Role of Membrane Lipids in the Design of Novel Membrane-Active Therapeutics
Karl Lohner, Director, Institute of Biophysics and Nanosystems Research, Austrian Academy of Sciences, Austria

Differences in lipid composition of bacterial, cancer and healthy mammalian cell membranes trigger the molecular mode of interaction of host defense peptides, which enables the design of novel therapeutics against antibiotic resistant bacteria and cancer.

14:45

Urinary Tract Infections (UTI): Through the Looking-Glass of Metabolomics
Oleg Mayboroda, Assistant Professor, Leiden University Medical Center, Netherlands

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) encompasses a variety of clinical syndromes ranging from mild to life-threatening conditions. As such, it represents an interesting model for the development of an analytically based scoring system of disease severity and/or host response.
