Dr. Arieh Moussaieff: Understanding lipid networks

Dr. Arieh Moussaieff
In our lab, we aim to characterize metabolic networks and in particular lipid metabolic networks for monitoring and regulating changes in biological systems by metabolic perturbations.
Using state of the art analytical instrumentation and bioinformatic tools, we are able to identify thousands of small molecules (metabolites) in a given sample.
Using stem cell technologies and other advanced cellular, multicellular and animal models as well as clinical samples, we study the changes in lipid composition (lipidome) during developmental and pathological processes. We are especially interested in lipid metabolic zonation and the link between metabolism (especially lipid metabolism) and cell fate.
