molecular atlas

Highly multiplexed, untargeted MALDI imaging mass spectrometry data reveal the localization of various lipids and metabolites to specific functional regions of the nephron, the kidney's filtering unit (right).

Grants spur efforts to create molecular ‘atlases’ of organs

Vanderbilt researchers have received three grants totaling $13.6 million from the National Institutes of Health to develop molecular “atlases” of the brain, kidney, eye and other tissues.
