In 2021, ISAS established the junior research group Spatial Metabolomics. Over the following five years, the research group, funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF), is going to develop a multi-method approach that will allow the parallel analysis of metabolic processes under spatial and temporal aspects. For this purpose, the team will combine two complementary analytical techniques such as mass spectrometry (MS) imaging and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy for their multi-omics analyses. The goal is to use future to enable new and improved treatments in precision medicine for cardiovascular diseases and cancer.
The Federal Ministry for Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF) is funding the MSCoreSys-associated junior research group Spatial Metabolomics under the funding number 161L0271.
