What is the Metablab approach?


The "Metablab approach" seems to refer to the study of metabolomics. According to , metabolomics is the broad study of metabolites, which are components like glucose, acetylCoA, and lactate. This field aims to understand how different physiologic states affect the metabolomic profile. For example, the state of exercise produces a specific metabolomic profile that could significantly influence our understanding of its benefits. Metabolomics could potentially identify small molecules that replicate some protective benefits of exercise, which could be used alongside exercise to treat conditions like diabetes 1.

The Power of Metabolomics

Peter discusses the potential of metabolomics in understanding the physiologic states of exercise and finding small molecules that can replicate some of the protective benefits of exercise for treating other disease states like diabetes.
