    University San Pablo-CEU in Madrid (USP-CEU), Spain

    USP-CEU is a private University depending on a non-profit Foundation devoted to Education. The Faculty of Pharmacy is highly active in basic and applied research as well as collaboration projects with Industry. Analytical Chemistry Research Group leads Center for Metabolomics and Bioanalysis (CEMBIO), research center-world top leaders in metabolomics, to provide an answer to the necessities of academic and industrial research in the field of Health Sciences. CEMBIO takes a multi-faceted and coordinated approach to metabolite analysis research extending from initial screening with untargeted methodology searching for new biomarkers all the way to validation studies of previously selected markers in target. It has a set of staff around 20 specialists in different fields: Statistics, Pharmacy, Biochemistry and mainly Analytical Chemistry. Our strength in research is not only the applications, but also working on improving the tools and workflow in metabolomics. Since 2008 CEMBIO has published more than 100 articles in Metabolomics applied to different areas. It has a wide range of experience in cooperation projects with foreign Universities and Research Centers (Imperial College, Baltimore NHI or Sao Paulo University)), companies (Lilly or Airbus Defense & Space) as well as with the most important research institutions in Spain. As a proof of our international recognition in the metabolomics field is that CEMBIO is a member of the Partner Labs Network from Agilent Technologies. It has unique resources in mass spectrometry coupled to different separation techniques (LC, GC and CE) and has the latest developments, not only in instrumentation, but also in software for data treatment. Besides significant number of mass spectrometers (Qtof and QqQ), CEMBIO uses the following data treatment software: Mass Hunter, Mass Profiler Professional, and SIMCA. It has developed its own integrated research tool for metabolite searching, CEU MASS MEDIATOR©. The members of the CEMBIO supervise MSc and PhD, post doc students on a regular basis. The CEU group has a long term experience in collaborating and organizing graduate and doctorate courses: Perinatal Biochemistry and Pathology (awarded as Quality Course by Madrid Autonomous Community, Master course in Industrial and Technological Pharmacy). Key persons: Prof Dr. Coral Barbas, Dr. Antonia García Fernández, Dr. Javier Rupérez.
