Cores and Services

The Mayo Clinic Metabolomics Resource Core is a fully integrated program supporting metabolomics research and education worldwide. The program has four cores and one service line:

Administrative Core. Oversees the daily operations and facilitates integration.

Metabolomics Core. The core exists as a resource to support investigators at Mayo Clinic as well as external investigators. Services include targeted and untargeted metabolomic profiling, metabolite flux and isotope ratio measurements.

Metabolomics Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Core. Provides a NMR spectroscopy-based dynamic metabolomic platform for untargeted and targeted quantification of metabolite levels and measurement of fluxes within metabolic networks in human and transgenic animal biofluids.

Promotion and Outreach Core. Recruits and trains the next generation of metabolomics scientists by developing and disseminating educational materials via workshops, seminars and graduate level courses.

Bioinformatics, Biostatistics and Systems Biology Service Line. Provides statistical guidance during the study design stage, processes the ensuing data and provides an integrative framework to carry out systems biology modeling.


NIH Public Access Policy requires that all publication that results from NIH funding be uploaded to PubMed Central. Review the process for uploading publications.

Awardees must cite the Mayo Clinic Metabolomics Resource Core grant as a funding source in any resulting publications. Use this language:

This publication was made possible by Mayo Clinic Metabolomics Resource Core through grant number U24DK100469 from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases and originates from the National Institutes of Health Director's Common Fund.
