New methods to complete the lipidomics puzzle: revealing the structural diversity of lipids by mass spectrometry

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • The aim of the current proposal is to develop novel mass spectrometry based techniques to advance lipid analytical capabilities. We then aim to integrate them into shotgun lipidomics to provide complete structural characterisation of hundreds of lipids simultaneously. This will provide a powerful new tool for Australian biochemists, molecular biologist and medical researchers that is unmatched worldwide. This directly supports the national research priority of Frontier Technologies for Building and Transforming Australian Industries and through its application to the study of lipid-related disorders, e.g. type 2 diabetes indirectly supports the national research priority of Promoting and Maintaining Good Health.
