NMR-based Metabolomics [login at prompt]
Available: 01/10/22, Expires: 03/01/24

Students will be involved in the design, conduct, analysis, and publications of human disease (cancer, AD, etc.) associated metabolomics measured from intact tissues and biofluids. The analytical platform will mostly be on ex vivo NMR, but may include mass spectrometry (imaging), and in vivo MR, depending the design of the project(s). No prior skill will be needed, as long as the interested students considering themselves as fast-learners.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
