Prof. Pfeiffer, CHARITÉ and German Institute of Human Nutrition (DIfE)
With its Shotgun Lipidomics Technology, Lipotype delivered its one-of-a-kind, detailed, quantitative information on lipid structure and composition, revealing dietary effects on the global lipid composition of human plasma and how hereditary factors influence the lipid metabolism. This fruitful collaboration between Professor Pfeiffer and Lipotype demonstrates the power of lipid analysis in nutritional research.
Prof. Pfeiffer treats patients at the Medical Department of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Nutritional Medicine of the Charité Berlin (Campus Benjamin Franklin). A better understanding of the mechanisms eliciting the metabolic syndrome will provide a key for targeted strategies of prevention.
