Dr. Martin Giera is an associate professor at Leiden University researching clinical metabolomics, the study of metabolites and how they take part in biochemical processes. Ultimately, the goal is to gain a deeper understanding of human physiology and the physiological processes of specific diseases, which could open the door to novel treatments and diagnostic processes for cancer and other diseases which we don’t currently understand.
Dr. Giera discusses a range of topics, including the role of the microbiome in metabolism, the Warburg effect, how the metabolic differences between different types of cancers indicate the need for personalized therapy for cancer, and what’s on the horizon for him and his team in the coming months. Tune in for all the details.
