Metabolon’s partners will collaborate toward shared objectives through this program.

Metabolon, Inc. has announces the launch of its Disease Metabolism Strategic Outsourcing Program.

Through this program, Metabolon’s partners will collaborate toward shared objectives such as identifying novel targets, establishing high resolution phenotypic screening platforms, elucidating drug mechanism of action, discovering and validating pharmacodynamic biomarkers for translation to the clinic and for patient stratification.

Partners will have access to dedicated scientific, technical and IT staff at Metabolon, along with the company’s proprietary disease ontologies, as well as supporting visualization tools for the integration of metabolomics data with existing or data derived from such disciplines as genomics and proteomics.

John Ryals, Metabolon President and CEO, said, “We are excited to launch our Strategic Outsourcing Program as it represents a step change in the way the industry will think about and use metabolomics. This initiative results from years of research and development at Metabolon and has been requested by our industrial clients to fully exploit the potential of our platform. We believe that integrating metabolomic profiling deeply at the various stages of the R&D trajectory will lead to better targets, higher quality molecules, faster time to the clinic and reduced R&D risk and cost.”

Metabolon has completed hundreds of projects including those in oncology and metabolic disorders, and has acquired vast institutional knowledge of the metabolic pathways and targets that are involved in the onset of disease and its progression.

This new program offers a turnkey metabolism center of excellence that provides pharmaceutical and biotech partners access to the most advanced metabolomics research platforms, which serve to enhance their drug discovery and development efficiency.

Metabolon’s platform yields actionable insight into key disease metabolic processes, drug action, and patient response.
