Adding Metabolomics to Precision Medicine

by Carlos Malpica, PhD, MBA, European Director Metabolon Inc.


Precision medicine is an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account each person’s individual variability in genes, environment and lifestyle. Today, the ability of Metabolon’s technology to impact human health is more compelling than ever as the promise of precision medicine rapidly becomes a reality.

Metabolomics improves our understanding of health and the influences of diet, drug treatment, genes and lifestyle. While genomics often reveals only predisposition or risk of disease, Metabolon provides a snapshot of the current state of health and actionable information to advance clinical decision-making and research.
