Upcoming Lectures

Topic: Social Networks For Molecular Analysis
Date: April 13, 2015 10:00 a.m. ET
Speaker: Pieter Dorrestein, Ph.D.
Location: **Please note: Lecture will take place in Masur Auditorium at the NIH Clinical Research Center (Building 10).

 
Pieter Dorrestein, Ph.D., is professor of pharmacology, chemistry and biochemistry in the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Dorrestein is also the director of the Collaborative Mass Spectrometry Innovation Center and co-director of the Institute for Metabolomics Medicine at UC San Diego.

Our world is made up of complex organisms and researchers are only able to scratch the surface when it comes to analyzing the make-up of our surrounding biology. In this lecture, Dr. Dorrestein will explore strategies for organizing and visualizing the massive amount of molecular information collected from mass spectrometers. Dr. Dorrestein will also discuss a new social networking tool his lab has launched in order to annotate molecular information and how this tool, which has nearly a billion spectra uploaded and thousands of users from 65 countries, can help further our understanding of molecular complexities.
