Metabolomics

The emerging area of metabolomics describes the simultaneous detection and quantitative measurement of large numbers of metabolites in biological samples such as normal and pathological tissue and bio-fluids. Detection of multiple metabolites, which are the end products of a multitude of genomic and proteomic functions promise immense applications in early diagnosis, prognosis and molecular level understanding of metabolic pathways associated with many diseases. Our laboratory utilizes and develops the latest technological advancements in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and mass spectrometry (MS) methods for analyzing biological samples from a variety of bio-samples. The complex datasets obtained are analyzed using multivariate statistical analyses. In addition, our lab is involved in the development of new chemical and technical methods for the enhancement of sensitive and selective biomarkers in various cancers and other diseases.  Read More about our Research…
