Topic 1 : Global metabolomics to identify markers for pre-diabetes and severity markers for diabetes.


- Diabetes develops over a period of 2-5 years.  Patients benefit immensely if they get a warning sign during this period.

Once developed, diabetes may result in complications.  Currently, available markers do not talk about the severity of the disease.

The proposed project will use a range of LCMS and GCMS methods to monitor over 500 metabolites from human blood and urine samples.

Advanced data analysis tools will be used to identify the biomarkers from the data.

The project is in collaboration with leading endocrinologists in the country.
