Welcome to the Center for Innovative Technology (CIT) at Vanderbilt University!

A state-of-the-art small molecule omics shared resource center and collaborative analytical facility specializing in a range of mass spectrometry and confocal screening techniques.

CIT Molecular Omics

The CIT focuses on metabolomics and lipidomics-based analyses and provides the infrastructure and expertise to measure both untargeted (discovery) and targeted (validation, quantification) small molecules derived from biospecimens such as cells, tissues, biofluids, and many others.

In addition, our research facility places an emphasis on the use and development of numerous separation technologies coupled to MS including hydrophobic/hydrophilic liquid chromatography (RPLC and HILIC) and ion mobility-mass spectrometry (IM-MS). Our technologies are supported by current state-of-the-art informatics and data analysis software.

The combination of these capabilities form the basis for the analyses of diverse sample matrices, as well as effluent analysis of advanced systems such as organ-on-chip microfluidics or 3-dimensional culture devices.

Our shared resource core facility is part of the Vanderbilt University iLab system.
