4th International Conference and Exhibition on Metabolomics & Systems Biology
April 27-29, 2015 Philadelphia, USA

Theme: Metabolomics Technology and Omics Sciences - A Roadmap for Advanced Research Initiatives

Metabolomics is an emerging field which combines strategies to identify and quantify cellular metabolites using sophisticated analytical technologies with the application of statistical and multi-variant methods for information extraction and data interpretation. Metabolomics is the study of small metabolites. Metabolomics Conference deals with topics like Bioinformatics, proteomics, systems biology, Analytical Techniques like NMR, GC-MS, LC-MS and CE-MS, Lipidomics, Metabolic Modelling, Metabolic profiling, clinical metabolomics, Translational sciences, Mass spectrometry, Metabolomics Syndrome, HPLC and CE based metabolomics and more.  Metabolomics - the new "omics" - is a dynamic and developing field, joining genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics in empowering an integrative frameworks science methodology to drug discovery and development. In spite of the fact that metabolomics is still at an early evolutionary stage it is conjecture that throughout the following decade the biopharma business will apply this innovation all the more generally in drug development and information.

'The Future of Metabolomics' gives full fledged understanding into the compelling utilization of metabolomics all through drug discovery, preclinical development and clinical trials. The report also highlights the use of metabolomics in maximizing and sustaining revenues post-marketing and in the development of clinical diagnostics.

Importance & Scope:

Metabolomics is now being extensively used in pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries for biomarker and drug discovery; pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries are expected to grow at a high rate in coming years, which is expected to boost the growth of the market.

Marianna Tcherpakov from BCC Research said “Like other omics, a metabolomics approach has big impacts in research and product development, especially in the area of biomarker and drug discovery applications”.

In 2012 The National Institutes of Health said that they are to invest $14.3 million for metabolomics research, potentially investing more than $51.4 million over five years, to accelerate an emerging field of biomedical research known as metabolomics. As per National Center for Biotechnology Information, metabolomics has matured over the past 10 years. Over 300 studies have been completed over the past 5 years. [Source: Ref1]

Why Philadelphia?

According to Greater Philadelphia Regional 2013 report, The region is home to nearly 1,200 Life Science establishments from global pharmaceutical leaders to medical device and diagnostics to biotech and contract research organizations. Universities in Greater Philadelphia award 2,612 certificates and degrees in biological and biomedical sciences and an additional 661 degrees in pharmacy majors, creating a large pool of skilled graduates. Home to 101 degree-granting institutions, Greater Philadelphia ranks as one of the nation’s leading centers for higher education with a total of 91,844 degrees and certificates awarded. This provides a steady pipeline of highly-educated people who enter the workforce or launch startup companies in the Greater Philadelphia region.

The Greater Philadelphia region is among the nation’s top 5 research and development (R&D) centers by spending according to Select Greater Philadelphia’s Research & Development Study conducted in 2011. Greater Philadelphia’s private sectors made up the bulk of this spending with a total of $8.9 billion, followed by colleges and universities which accounted for more than $1.3 billion in spending. Top Fortune 1,000 Companies are Head quartered in the region with 1,000+ employees.

As per pagoppolicy.com The Greater Philadelphia region (GPR) is the tri-state, 11-county region covering Northern Delaware, Southern New Jersey, and South eastern Pennsylvania. Strategically located midway between New York and Washington D.C., the GPR is at the center of the United States' largest consumer and business markets.

Importance of R&D Activities to Enhancing Regional Economic Competitiveness: Total R&D spending in the region in 2008 was just under $10.5 billion or 2.9% of Greater Philadelphia’s GRP. According to the National Science Foundation (NSF), total spending in 2008, the most recent year for which data is available, for R&D activities performed in the U.S. was $397.6 billion, or just under 2.8% of GDP.
