Keynote Speakers

The organizers of Metabolomics 2018 are pleased to announce the confirmed keynote speakers below.

Ute Roessner

Prof Ute Roessner has obtained her PhD in Plant Biochemistry at the Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Plant Physiology in Germany, where she developed novel GC-MS based methods to analyse metabolites in plants. With the combination of small molecule analytics and sophisticated bioinformatics and statistics the field of metabolomics was born which today is an important tool in biological sciences, systems biology and biomarker discovery. In 2003 she moved to Australia where she established a GC-MS and LC-MS based metabolomics platform as part of the Australian Centre for Plant Functional Genomics (www.acpfg.com.au). Between 2011 and 2014 she led the ACPFG node at the School of BioSciences, The University of Melbourne. Also, in 2007 Ute became the Head of Analytics of a government funded national metabolomics fee-for-service facility Metabolomics Australia (MA, www.metabolomics.com.au) and now leads the MA node at the School of BioSciences, The University of Melbourne. In 2013 she was awarded a prestigious ARC Future Fellowship which aims to identify novel mechanisms of salinity tolerance in barley by spatial analysis of metabolites and lipids using Imaging Mass Spectrometry.

Hannele Ruohola-Baker

Hannele Ruohola-Baker is a Professor of Biochemistry and Associate Director of the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle. Her research focuses on the molecular biology of stem cells and on the use of Drosophila as model organisms for human diseases. Her laboratory studies the molecules and cellular properties that are required for stem cell states and their differentiation capacity, both in normal and pathological situations. She has shown that microRNAs and HIF pathways play key roles in regulating adult and embryonic stem cell self-renewal in model organisms as well as in hESC and iPSC. The laboratory presently works on three questions: 1) what are the metabolic determinants of stem cells, 2) what are the key microRNAs that induce cardiomyocyte maturation and 3) what is the molecular mechanism of stem cell protection against apoptosis.
