The Precision Medicine Task Group of the Metabolomics Society in partnership with other organizations and interest groups is organizing a virtual workshop on Single Cell Metabolomics, to be held on Friday February 26, 2021 10 AM – 13.00 pm EST (4 pm – 7 pm Vienna).

Omics at single cell resolution has expanded very rapidly, most obviously in genomics/transcriptomics. However, this approach lacks direct analysis of function, such as cellular metabolism. Most tissues are fundamentally heterogeneous at the cellular level, and heterogeneity is a hallmark of several pathologies including cancer. The Workshop will comprise invited talks and a general open discussion forum.


  • Coverage
  • Imaging based methods (MS, microdissection, optical, other)
  • Prospects for stable isotope tracing at single cell resolution
