The Role of Small Molecules in Biology

We collaborate with Prof. Joseph Bartges in the UGA vet school. Joe is an expert in clinical nutrition and is especially interested in advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which are present at high abundance in processed food, such as canned dog food or kibble. AGEs cause a number of health problems in people and pets, and we are trying to help Joe and his team understand the relationship between AGEs and metabolites.
