Metabolomics: Discovery, Innovation, and Diagnostic Potential

Untargeted metabolomics refers to the systematic measurement of all small molecules found in a biological sample, including endogenous metabolites and exogenous compounds from food, medications and environmental exposures and represents a key opportunity for personalized diagnostics. Innovations in compound identification, analysis and interpretation will lead to the next expansion of clinical diagnostics. I describe analyses using imaging mass spectrometry, direct analysis of tissues, and traditional LC-MS approaches we use to help understand biological phenomena.
