On December 12, 2019 Andrea Motta, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) Istituto di Chimica Biomolecolare (ICB), will given a presentation entitled Basics of NMR-based metabolomics at 16:00 in the College Lecture theatre at Colegio A. Volta. All students are invited to attend, especially those reading Medicine, Biology, Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
The poster of the lecture can be downloaded here.
The NMR basics will be introduced and the technical application to metabolomics will be discussed. Examples will be taken from our studies on respiratory diseases.
