1:00 PM, 208 Biochemistry
Harness the Power of Metabolomics
Tuesday, September 10, Room 208 Biochemistry (8:30 am-3:30 pm). Registration details will follow soon.
Dr. Robert Quinn (BMB) will be hosting a metabolics workshop this September 11th. This workshop is designed to teach analysis of mass spectrometry data (with a focus on untargeted metabolomics) with new bioinformatic tools that can translate this highly technical data into biologically relevant information. GNPS is a new database and data analysis server for tandem (MS/MS) mass spec data analysis. With GNPS you can visualize your metabolomics data in novel ways that enable identification of known compounds, determining the structure of unknowns, and with statistical tools that are designed to identify biological patterns in the overall data. Contact Rob Quinn by August 30th if you are interested in attending. The location will be determined by the number of respondents.
Mini Workshops will be presented by Graduate School staff. Topics include setting expectations, wellness, and career planning & student success. Each workshop will be 20 minutes long.
Saturday, August 24, 2019, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, MSU Union
For new and returning graduate students and their families.
Saturday, August 24, 2019, Noon - 3pm.
The Venture Fellows program assists in launching startup companies based on inventions by MSU faculty, staff and graduate students and to provide graduate students experience in technology commercialization. The program runs from September through the end of April. Fellows will have a direct impact on scaling MSU technology for commercialization and have access to top-ranked faculty as well as industry experts. Fellows are grouped in teams of three – a business student and two STEM/STEAM students – who are responsible for developing and executing a plan for moving the technology towards commercialization.
A new professional-development graduate course that will help you deal with the challenges in grad school and future career. Spring Semester, 2020.
Arjun Krishnan will be teaching a short course on essential concepts for rigorous practice & critical interpretation of statistical data analyses will be offered this fall from November 6th to December 4th, M-W, 3pm-5pm.
ANS 490/890 will be offered this fall. Contemporary topics will be covered on stem cell research and applications, focusing on pluripotent stem cells and several types of adult stem cells during mammalian reproduction, development, and tissue regeneration.
