The Power List 2019 – 21-100 (A-Z)

Coral Barbas

Director of the Centre for Metabolomics and Bioanalysis (CEMBIO), San Pablo CEU University, Spain.

Research goal: We develop strategies to obtain reliable identifications and measurements of metabolites in response to changes such as disease state, diet and receipt of treatment.

Eureka moment: I began my research career in pharmaceutical analysis, and was sceptical when moving to metabolomics. I was studying a group of infected mice in my early days and one was misclassified; when a representative from the animal husbandry pointed out that one of the animals wasn’t infected, I looked at the screen and immediately exclaimed that it must be number 8. All of the animals were ordered on screen by their degree of infection, and I became a believer in metabolomics at that moment!
