H. pylori, lipid loss and stomach cancer

H. pylori infection — a strong risk factor for stomach cancer — changes the composition of stomach lipids, which could offer new biomarkers for detecting premalignant changes, Vanderbilt researchers discovered.

Vanderbilt team first to blend high-end imaging techniques

Vanderbilt University researchers have achieved the first “image fusion” of mass spectrometry and microscopy — a technical tour de force that could, among other things, dramatically improve the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

Taking the ‘noise’ out of protein data

Vanderbilt researchers have developed a novel algorithm to improve results from proteomic studies.

Imaging Mass Spectometry

Grant bolsters molecular imaging resource

Vanderbilt has received a $10.3 million federal grant to establish a national research resource for mass spectometry.
