Development of new methods for metabolomic screens

In this project we aim to generate simple assays similar to commercial pregnancy tests that can detect the presence of specific molecules (metabolites) related to disease conditions. We will use our knowledge and
experience to generate easy-to-use strips that will allow specific detection of health-relevant metabolites that can be used in clinical or at-home settings by patients and physicians; providing for the rapid submission and
analysis of results. If successful, the project will generate tools that can be used for pre-screening and serve as real-time indicators if further, more complex, testing is required. These tools will contribute to the proprietary
patient health profiling platform of the host company, Molecular You. At the same time the intern will gain valuable experience regarding scientific research in an industry setting.
