Giotto Biotech is one of the winning companies of Faber 2. Thanks to this funding, a new resource will become part of our team and will develop a research project addressed to the Italian agro-food companies that operate in the supply chain of oil. The project intends to apply nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) based metabolomics for the determination of the quality and the geographic characterization of the product.

Faber 2 is a project of the di Fondazione CR Firenze, Confindustria Firenze and Fondazione per la Ricerca e l’Innovazione, promoted by Università degli Studi di Firenze and Città Metropolitana di Firenze.

Congratulations to Alessia Vignoli! She won the two-years AIRC fellowship “Eduardo Spinnato”.”METabolomic profile as a prognostic biomarker of risk of recurrence in patients operated for COLon cancer (METCOL)” is the title of her research project. The project will be carried on thanks to a strict collaboration between Cerm (Prof. Claudio Luchinat research team) and the Medical Oncology Department at Hospital of Prato (Dr. Angelo Di Leo equipe).

Maxime Denis, Giotto Biotech’s PhD student, presented his reasearch progress on “Design and optimization of paramagnetic tags for NMR”. His presentation was held in Paris at 5th AEGIS Training school.

This morning, Leonardo Tenori, member of Giotto Biotech Board of Director, spoke about Metabolomics based on NMR.

It was a great opportunity to illustrate to participants of Toscana Tech how Metabolomics based on NMR works and to offer some details about fields of application. Some examples of the fields of application are:

  • Biomedical: metabolomic profiling of biological fluids (breath condensate, expectorate, sweat, urine, blood, serum), disease fingerprinting.
  • Pharmaceutical: prediction of drug toxicity, analysis of mechanism of action and side effects.
  • Agro-food: analyses of food products (fruits, vegetables, dairy products, olive oil, meat and fish, etc.).
  • Probiotic: metabolomics of probiotic products for their characterization.
