CPD began working with the Division of Systems Medicine and the Imperial Phenome Centre in Autumn 2019, with a view to deliver a number of short training courses on metabolic profiling studies.
Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, our first course Hands-on Data Analysis for Metabolic Profiling, which was due to take place on campus in April 2020, had to be delivered live online in June 2020. This popular course was a great success and continued to be delivered online remotely twice annually until November 2021.
Despite the advantages of online delivery, it was so exciting to be back at our Hammersmith campus after 2.5 years for our most recent course on 11-15 July. The 5-day course, led by Professor Tim Ebbels, Course Director and Professor of Biomedical Data Science, offers comprehensive, hands-on training in processing and analysing metabolomics data from LC-MS and NMR technologies.
In addition to the lectures and Hands-on practical sessions, the course provided the face-to-face networking opportunities we have all missed, with a chance to socialise at the drinks reception and course dinner and it was so refreshing to see delegates and tutors in person again!
We do however see merit in both formats of delivery and as such this particular course will be adopting a multi-mode approach, delivering the course twice annually; on campus in the summer and online during the winter and we look forward to seeing delegates online on 21-25 November!
