MATRIX Seminar - Dr. Theodore Perkins - February 10th, 2020
Bayesian Reasoning about Measurement Uncertainty in High-Throughput Data
Personalized MATRIX Career Planning and Counseling with Dr. Harper and Dr. Bennett
January to February 2020
MATRIX Scholars met individually with Dr. Harper and Dr. Bennett for an open discussion with constructive feedback about their future plans in academia, industrial research or other career trajectories. During these one hour sessions, trainees evaluated their Career Development Plan, a self-evaluation report detailing: a vision of their future career direction; their short, medium and long-term career goals; and the skills they possess, and those required, to achieve their goals.
March 2020 - In response to the pandemic, MATRIX programming and communication moved online to Slack.

MATRIX Basecamp 2020
November 16-24th, 2020
Comprehensive exploration of lipidomic and metabolomic mass spectrometry methods for the study of metabolism from the “ground-up.” Students will learn how to extract biological samples, operate a mass spectrometer, analyze raw data, identify lipids and metabolites within these datasets, and perform univariate, multivariate, supervised and unsupervised learning analysis in R. Students will be instructed in skills relevant to research project design (e.g., selection of research models), methodology, and the rigorous interpretation of results necessary to ensure accurate lipidomic/metabolomic results. Students will be introduced to approaches for the analysis of large data sets (e.g., from lipidomics, metabolomics), with an emphasis on the skills required for quantitative lipid assessment.
