The Metabolomics Expertise Center (MEC) is located on the Gasthuisberg campus in Leuven and specializes in the analysis of biochemical reactions (metabolomics).
We use mass spectrometry and various types of chromatography (gas and liquid) to perform these analyses. A unique expertise of MEC is the development of a Google Maps-
type platform that enables us to visualize and map information to biochemical pathways. The platform is used intensively by various researchers inside and outside Belgium who want to know these biochemical reactions relate to various relevant disease models (cancer, neurological diseases, metabolic diseases, etc.).
