In multiple sclerosis (MS), a chronic inflammatory and neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system, the body attacks the protective myelin sheath of neurons in the brain and the spinal cord. The damaged myelin causes communication problems between the central nervous system and the rest of the body. To this day, there is no cure for MS. Neurobiological researchers believe that MS does not only cause the clinical symptoms we look for as of today but also alters a patient’s lipid metabolism.

With an ever-increasing pool of accessible information and new tools to mine huge data sets, biology and medicine are moving from intervention to prevention. Omics sciences such as genomics and lipidomics are strong contributors to this paradigm shift. Being major players in cardiovascular disease research, genomics and lipidomics make a great multiomics pair. It matches the capacity to identify genetic predestinations with one or multiple snapshots of the lipid metabolic status to investigate cardiovascular diseases.
Moisturization has taken center stage in skin care research and product development for decades. New remedies for dry skin have entered and left the shelves of drugstores. Still, dry facial skin remains a major concern for consumers. Though skin biology is central to develop reliable moisturizers, researching the impact of the skin’s molecular profile has been lacking. Skin lipidomics is changing this.
