Studying metabolism in human health, disease and toxicology to benefit the UK and global population.
The £8M Phenome Centre Birmingham is a large metabolic phenotyping facility led by internationally-recognised metabolomics and clinical experts at the University of Birmingham, in collaboration with Birmingham Health Partners. The centre has been established as part of a UK Stratified Medicine initiative led by the Medical Research Council (MRC) to develop capacity and capability to perform large-scale metabolic phenotyping of the human population for stratified medicine. The centre will work towards improving healthy ageing and disease diagnosis and treatment to enhance patient outcome. Additionally, Phenome Centre Birmingham specialises in chemical and drug toxicology to benefit human health.
Professor Mark Viant, Executive Director of the Phenome Center Birmingham talks about the aims of the global phenome network and the state-of-the art nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy instrumentation the center uses to help realise these goals.
