DHMRI to Provide Metabolomics Services to RTI International’s Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Research Core Center
(North Carolina Research Campus, Kannapolis, NC- September 24, 2012)– The David H. Murdock Research Institute (DHMRI) at the North Carolina Research Campus will provide scientific expertise and state-of-the-art equipment access to the Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Research Core Center at RTI International.
The RTI center, funded by the NIH Common Fund, will work with a consortium of researchers to establish nationwide standards that provide consistency in metabolomics data collection and provide quality data for storage in a central data repository and coordinating center. The DHMRI will provide the RTI center with nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and mass spectrometry-based metabolomics services. The DHMRI will also participate in education and outreach activities with the center.
DHMRI Interim President Steve Lommel says, “This collaboration strengthens the relationship between RTI International and the DHMRI and leverages the metabolomics strengths of both institutions. We are excited to participate with other regional leaders to further the field of metabolomics.”
The RTI center will offer a comprehensive range of metabolomics services and also provide collaborative opportunities through pilot and feasibility studies designed to use metabolomics in clinical and translational research.
