Research Information

Research Interests

Dr. Brunengraber's research concentrates on metabolic regulation investigated in isolated cells and perfused organs by a combination of metabolomics and stable isotopic technologies based on mass spectrometry. This combination allows the discovery of new metabolic pathways and new regulatory mechanisms. It was with these techniques that, in 1994, his lab discovered what is now called the reductive metabolism of glutamine. This process plays an important role in the metabolism of cancer cells.
