Princeton Metabolomics Core


The core aims of the Metabolomics Core is to develop and validate metabolomic methods and data analysis software, including flux analysis, engage in collaborations that result in major advances in diabetes research, and provide high quality routine metabolic services.


  • Quantitation of selected water-soluble metabolites, fatty acids, and lipids.
  • Quantitation of metabolic fluxes using stable isotope tracers
  • Identification of novel metabolites involved in diabetes pathophysoiology

A typical metabolomics project involves appropriate sample preparation and handling, metabolite measurement at the core, and data analysis and interpretation. Interested users are encouraged to contact core staff to discuss the scientific objectives and experimental design before initiating a project.
