We developed a model of engagement to clinically translate LC-MS/MS-based analytical protocols to measure metabolites (lipids, small molecules) in human plasma. By close interactions with data scientists, clinicians and laboratory medicine, we are translating some of our lab-based technology into assays suitable for clinical applications. A special focus lies in understanding natural variation and population reference values. Data from ongoing studies in multi-ethnic cohorts will be discussed.
