Harnessing Lipidomics: Unveiling Innovative Biogenic Agents against Cancer and Inflammation
Cell-fate decisions involve changes in (lipid) metabolism that significantly influence health and disease. Alongside their fundamental roles in cellular compartmentalization and energy metabolism, various less abundant lipid species exist amidst lipid diversity and are increasingly being discovered as signaling molecules, such as second messengers or lipokines, with pivotal functions in programmed cell death and immune regulation. By exploiting the mechanistic diversity of cytotoxic natural products, we are deciphering lipid-controlled mechanisms through functional multiomics. This strategy reveals auspicious targets for pharmacotherapy, guides lead discovery and advances therapeutic innovation. This talk will introduce our quantitative lipidomics methodology, describe the challenges and nuances of lipidomic interrogation, and demonstrate the power of lipidomics-driven multiomics in chemical biology and molecular pharmacology at the intersection of cancer and inflammation for exemplary projects.
