NSF 2011 - Metabolomics for a Low Carbon Society; Research led by Oliver Fiehn of the University of California at Davis and Masanori Arita of the University of Tokyo. This project will improve methods to identify metabolites used by photosynthetic algae to produce biofuel--information that will be used to boost the manufacturing of biofuel. Project activities include advancing techniques in mass spectrometry--a method used to estimate the mass of molecules--and developing a new, integrated mass spectrometry database that will be freely accessible to the research community. 

NSF 2014 - Managing mixotrophic algae cultivation for efficient water treatment and biofuel production; Research led by Jean VanderGheynst, Oliver Fiehn, Tobias Kind and Brendan Higgins to develop algae cultivation and wastewater management systems that lead to higher substrate utilization efficiencies for biofuel production and organic matter removal from wastewater. Management options include strain selection and algae acclimation, rate and timing of substrate addition and management of wastewater composition. An additional goal is to determine bottlenecks in substrate utilization by microalgae. The first objective is to determine if acclimation of microalgae to organic carbon reduces substrate utilization efficiency and develop strategies to overcome this challenge. The second objective is to vary organic carbon and co-factor addition to algae using fed-batch reactors to determine if substrate supply rate impacts conversion efficiency, and the third objective is to use results from objectives 1 and 2 to tailor microalgae production variables for cultivation on food processing wastewaters.

AHA 2015- American Heart Association; Genomics of Lipidomic Phenotypes in a Postprandial Intervention Dietary Study (PI: Marguerite Ryan Irvin); (Role: co-PI) This proposal is led by Dr. Ryan Irvin, University of Alabama at Birmingham together with co-PI Dr. Kind at the UC Davis Genome Center and NIH West Coast Metabolomics Center. The study is based on research from a large and well-characterized family study, the Genetics of Lipid Lowering and Diet Network (GOLDN) and the HAPI Heart cohort. The proposal plans to link genetic with metabolic and lipidomic information to understand dyslipidemia (the abnormal elevation of lipids) and associated cardiovascular diseases. For that purpose lipidomics and steroid profiles will be measured at the West Coast Metabolomics Center in tight coordination with the director of the West Coast Metabolomics Center, Prof. Dr. Oliver Fiehn.

NIH 2015 - NIH/NHLBI; Genomewide Association Study of Lipid Response to Fenofibrate and Dietary Fat (PI: Arnett, Donna K.); Excerpt: Recent advances in mass spectrometry-based techniques allow metabolomic characterization in large populations. Detailed and precise measurement of lipid molecular species, a field known as "lipidomics," now offers an unprecedented picture of lipid metabolism. The Genetics of Lipid-Lowering Drugs and Diet Network (GOLDN) Study provides an ideal context in which to pursue this work. GOLDN is the largest family study conducted to date that has sought to identify genetic factors that explain response to two short-term interventions, one to raise lipids (i.e., ingestion of a high-fat meal, the "post-prandial lipemia" (PPL) intervention and one to lower lipids (i.e., treatment with fenofibrate (FFB)). The goal of the "Genomewide Association Study (GWAS) of Lipid Response to Fenofibrate and Dietary Fat" (Arnett, PI, R01-HL091357) was to identify the common genetic variants that explain response to the interventions. In addition to this, GOLDN is also conducting a genome- wide epigenomics study and exome sequencing through the NIH Pharmacogenomics Research Network (PGRN). The proposed work will leverage this wealth of genomic data in the context of state-of-the-art lipidomic phenotypes, specifically phospholipids, neutral lipids, and sterols, to identify rare and common variants and epigenetic marks that determine response to GOLDN's diet and drug interventions.
