Welcome to the Health Sciences Metabolomics and Lipidomics Core (HSMLC)

The Health Sciences Metabolomics and Lipidomics Core (HSMLC) is a Health Sciences Core Research Facility (HSCRF) located in the Department of Pharmacology & Chemical Biology. We provide assistance with projects that range in size from isolated experiments to major collaborations involving global analyses related to metabolites and lipids, and metabolic flux studies. We have working relationships with C3M, CMM and the Small Molecule Biomarker Core in order to facilitate highly collaborative research involving endocrinology and metabolism, the microbiome and quantitative biomarker analysis.

Our goal is provide the best assistance we can, beginning with the experimental design in order to provide you with the optimum data for your project. Ideally it is best to contact us before planning an experiment so we can assist with various parameters including numbers per group, sample storage and processing. However, many investigators have samples already stored from an ongoing study. In this event we can define realistic expectations of data output based on the sample condition and previous processing.
