Metabolomics Platform

Metabolomics Platform


The Metabolomics Platform is a consortium formed by three partners: Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV) (Department of Electronic, Electrical and Automatic Engineering), CIBERDEM (Spanish Network for Biomedical Research in Diabetes and Associated Metabolic Disorders) and Research Institute Sanitària Pere Virgili (IISPV).

The Metabolomics platform works in collaboration with clients, combining the experience in metabolomics with your clinical and biological knowledge.

We offer experience and advice in research on metabolomics, from conception and experimental design to data acquisition through data analysis and biological interpretation.

We work to improve your understanding of metabolism in health, disease and human toxicology to benefit the population.

We develop and apply innovative analytical and computational tools, fostering research in metabolomics and expanding boundaries in this field.

Our team of scientists has a combined experience of over 100 years in metabolomics.
