ASMS 2024: An Interview with Uri Keshet of the University of California, Davis


During ASMS 2024, which will take place June 2–6, 2024 in Anaheim, California, many scientists are set to present research on the latest advances in mass spectrometry. Recently, LCGC International sat down with Uri Keshet of the University of California, Davis to discuss his presentation, "Metabolomics of 13,700 human plasma samples for the TEDDY cohort: A Big Data Challenge and Opportunity for Mass Spectrometry."

Uri Keshet is the Technical Director at the UC Davis Genome Center - Metabolomics in the University of California, Davis in Davis, California (1). In 2012, he earned his Bachelors in Chemistry, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel, and in 2018, he received a PhD in chemistry from Tel Aviv University as well. His research interests include analytical chemistry, chromatographic separation technologies, development of novel instrumentation, and the development of new methods for MS analysis techniques.

In this interview, Keshet answers the following questions:

  • What can you tell us about your upcoming presentation at ASMS?
  • Why does metabolomics pose challenges for data acquisition, processing, and analysis?
  • Why is LC-MS/MS a useful technique for large metabolomic studies?
  • Were there any unexpected discoveries that were made during this experiment?
  • What is the next step in your research?
  • What are you most looking forward to at this year’s ASMS conference?
