Our vision

In our lab, we aim to characterize metabolic networks and in particular lipid metabolic networks for monitoring and regulating changes in biological systems by metabolic perturbations.


​Using state of the art analytical instrumentation and bioinformatic tools, we are able to identify a multitude of small molecules (metabolites) in a given sample.


Using stem cell technologies and other advanced cellular, multicellular and animal models as well as clinical samples, we study the changes in lipid composition (lipidome) during developmental and pathological processes. We are especially interested in lipid metabolic zonation and the link between metabolism and cell fate.
