    Research interests


    Torbjørn Norberg Myhre is a member of the Natural Products and Medicinal Chemistry Research Group at the Department of Pharmacy at UiT - The Arctic University of Norway. His research projects are focused on the development and validation of methods for a SQL database of untargeted metabolome data from population study biobank samples. 



    1) Untargeted metabolomics

    2) Global/targeted metabolomics and lipidomics

    3) Method development for LC- and GC-MS/MS analyses

    4) Semi-quantification in high resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS)



    TROMBOLOME - TROMsø study metaBOLOME is a project that aims to build a SQL database of untargeted metabolome data which can be used with registry data of participants to uncover metabolic patterns associated with myocarial infarction, and as such improve the insight of the pathology of this disease.
