Construction of the Fundamental System for Lipid Metabolomics and Its Application

Research Project Outline

The aim of this project is to construct fundamental techniques for comprehensive analysis on the changes in lipid metabolites within living cells by mass spectrometry. Also it aims for making an effective regulation system of cell function by investigating novel lipid metabolites or metabolic pathways. Analysis of metabolomics on lipid metabolism which is tightly concerning several lifestyle-related diseases is very important for human health. The data obtained in this project are also expected to give benefit for the industrial applications such as new drug discovery and nutritional improvement of foods.
