Fundamental Research Division
The DRF at the CEA assemble approximately 6,000 scientists since January 2016.
The infrastructure provides academic research teams and partners in industry with access to expertise and high added value services in metabolomics and fluxomics.
The application of techniques developed by MetaboHUB brings many tools to the scientific community:
INRA, CNRS, Université de
Bordeaux, CEA, Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Université Blaise
Pascale, INSAT, Inserm, Université Paul Sabatier
MetaboHUB groups 4 sites dedicated to metabolomics in Bordeaux, Clermont-Ferrand, Gif-sur-Yvette and Toulouse.

The DSV team participating in this infrastructure is the Drug Metabolism Research Laboratory, LEMM (CEA-IBITECS). Its research activity within MetaboHUB involves both methodological developments in high-resolution mass spectrometry and applications in human health and the environment. For example, researchers at the LEMM endeavor to characterize biomarkers in the fields of neurology, oncology, genetic diseases of red blood cells and microbiology.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
