Le Cancer Metabolism Research Laboratory


Metabolomics Program

The Le laboratory is in charge of Metabolomics Program which is part of Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) -supported labs.

  • Provides consultation to basic, clinical, and translational research teams regarding the feasibility, design, and costs of projects using metabolomics technologies (including mass spec and NMR-based metabolomics);
  • Provides metabolomics approaches based on specific research projects/questions: ranging from simple assays to high-throughput approaches such as global metabolic profiling and stable isotope-13C, 15N-labeling on a wide variety of sample types;
  • Provides extensive data analysis and suggests options for subsequent steps towards clinical implementation.
