The Michigan Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Core (MRC2) is one of six metabolomics centers
in the United States funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Common Fund.


The MRC2 aims to improve diagnosis, prevention and monitoring of many diseases through metabolic profiling. The metabolome is the sum of all metabolites at a given moment. Profiling gives a chemical readout of the state of health of the cell or body and its changes. These results provide a wealth of information about nutrition, infection, health and disease status.
