We study global metabolic rewiring and map new metabolites using mass spectrometry and bioinformatic methods. Our research focuses on expanding our view of metabolite functions and metabolic pathways in health and disease (e.g., inflammation, cancer, etc.) in order to identify therapeutically actionable metabolic vulnerabilities.
