Metabolomics Core

Core Aims:

  1. To develop and validate metabolomic methods and data analysis software, including flux analysis
  2. To engage in collaborations that result in major advances in diabetes research
  3. To provide high quality routine metabolomic services

Core services:

  1. Quantitation of selected water-soluble metabolites, fatty acids, and lipids
  2. Quantitation of metabolic fluxes using stable isotope tracers
  3. Identification of novel metabolites involved in diabetes pathophysoiology

A typical metabolomics project involves appropriate sample preparation and handling, metabolite measurement at the core, and data analysis and interpretation.  Interested users are encouraged to contact core staff to discuss the scientific objectives and experimental design before initiating a project.
