The Fiehn research laboratory develops improved methods in analytical chemistry and cheminformatics to capture and utilize metabolomic data, specifically in cancer metabolism, and other health-related projects.
Metabolomics is used both as a discovery tool (including for biomarker research) and to discern mechanism in cellular regulations in health and disease. We validate metabolic hypotheses using multiple other tools, including proteomics and genomics data sets as well as a variety of biological models on organismal, tissue or cellular levels.
