The Ejsing Lab is situated at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Southern Denmark.
Our research is focused on the development and applications of mass spectrometry-based lipidomics techniques that allow global analysis of cellular lipidomes with the ultimate goal of further understanding cell physiology.
Mass spectrometry-based lipidomics is a powerful new tool for characterizing the molecular lipid composition of cells and tissues. In comparison with traditional methods such as thin-layer chromatography and liquid chromatography, lipidomics offer unsurpassed sensitivity and structural resolution at the level of individual lipid species. Lipidomic techniques can be executed to provide lipidome-wide quantitative assessment of global perturbations promoted by physiological and pathological stimuli.
