Welcome to the Cooper Lab at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology.

Our lab is focused on using metabolomics in a variety of different areas with the goal of understanding metabolic alterations that are relevant for human disease and normal cell biology. We work both in model systems as well as with clinical samples. Some of our current projects focus in the following areas:


Understanding natural

variation in metabolism

Identifying small molecule

biomarkers of human disease

Integrating metabolomics

data with other -omics data

Using yeast as a model

for human disease
