Clinical Analysis & Research Applying Mass spectrometry & Bioinformatics at Akademiska


Clinical Proteomics & Metabolomics
We have developed and implemented mass spectrometry-based methods for proteomics and metabolomics, including targeted and untargeted analyses of hormones, lipids and small signaling molecules in human cerebrospinal fluid and blood samples. These signals are further connected to biological pathways and demographic patient data. We are currently involved in three large efforts;

Characterization and stratification of multiple sclerosis phenotypes
Improve diagnostic markers for chronic pain states
Early detection of Alzheimer’s disease

We are also part of the EU Horizon 2020 project PhenoMeNal with focus on implementing clinical metabolomics into the clinic.
