SECIM is dedicated to educating the future leaders in the field of metabolomics. We offer a range of workshops and online resources focused on training users in the technology and analysis offered by SECIM. We will soon be regularly offering one hour “brown bag” lunch topics about SECIM and metabolomics research. In the future, these will be videotaped for off-campus users and students. Please add your name to our distribution list to be notified about upcoming opportunities.


2015 SECIM Workshop: May 11-14, 2015

The 2nd Annual SECIM Metabolomics Workshop will be held Monday, May 11 through Thursday, May 14, 2015, in Gainesville, Florida.

This year’s workshop focuses on metabolomics data processing, data analysis, and metabolite identification, including hands-on training sessions. Attendees are required to bring their own laptops in order to conduct hands-on data analysis. A quick overview of metabolomics, and an introduction to the analytical instrumentation will also be covered.


Due to limited space, registration for the 2015 SECIM Workshop is capped at a maximum of 40 attendees.
