ProtIG is an NIH Special Interest Group (SIG) that organizes seminars and workshops in relevant areas of proteomics, including talks on separation and protein identification methods, determination of post-translational modifications, protein-protein interactions, and bioinformatics and data management. A monthly seminar series is usually held at 10 am on the Second Thursday of each month (always check the Mtgs/Seminars button on this page for these and other PROTIG announced meetings).

March ProtIG Seminar
Thursday April 4th, 2019
10:00 am - 11:00am
Building 50, NIH Campus
Room 1227/1333 (Lobby Conference Room)
Anne Le Thi, H.D.R.,M.D., M.S.
Associate Professor of Pathology and Oncology
School of Medicine
Johns Hopkins University

"Metabolomics-Based Discovery of Metabolic Aspects of Cancer and Other Diseases”

Dr. Anne Le’s research primarily focuses on cancer metabolism. Using metabolomics technologies, her work has led to breakthrough discoveries revealing several characteristic features of the metabolism of cancer. One of these, the dependence of cancer cells on glutamine metabolism, has translated into clinical trials as a novel therapy for cancer patients. In her talk, Dr. Le will discuss the complexity and diversity of cancer cell metabolism within the same tissue of origin, and even within individual tumor cell populations. Importantly, she will illustrate how to take advantage of metabolomics technologies for the discovery of metabolic aspects of cancer and other diseases.

Seminars will be webcast online at and available on the
Proteomics Interest Group website as an archived presentation unless otherwise noted.
