Out-patient Clinic for Lipidology
Lipidomics is concerned with the characterization of fatty acids and their metabolites in biological systems. Its goal is to systematically understand the physiological and pathophysiological functions of lipids and their metabolites in the context of individual cells and entire organisms.
The Outpatient clinic for Lipidology at the ECRC examines the role of lipids and lipid metabolites in metabolic diseases, cancer and chronic inflammatory diseases. A particular focus is the analysis of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and their metabolites.
