About Matej Oresic

Matej Orešič holds a PhD in biophysics from Cornell University. He is a professor in medicine with a specialization in systems medicine at Örebro Universitry and group leader in systems medicine at the Turku Centre for Biotechnology, University of Turku. Prof. Orešič’s main research areas include exposomics and metabolomics applications in biomedical research and systems medicine. He is particularly interested in the identification of environmental exposures (exposome) and disease processes associated with different metabolic phenotypes and the underlying mechanisms linking these processes with the development of specific disorders or their co-morbidities. Prof. Orešič has also initiated the popular MZmine open source project, leading to popular software for metabolomics data processing. He currently coordinates European collaborative project ’Inflammation in human early life: targeting impacts on life-course health’ – INITIALISE (

Previosuly, Prof. Orešič was principal investigator at Steno Diabetes Center (Gentofte, Denmark), research professor at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland (Espoo, Finland), head of computational biology and modeling at Beyond Genomics, Inc. (Waltham/MA) and bioinformatician at LION Bioscience Research in Cambridge/MA. As of 2016, Professor Oresic was made a Lifetime Honorary Fellow of the Metabolomics Society. He is co-founder and former chair of the board of the Nordic Metabolomics Society and currently serves in the board of directors of the Metabolomics Society. In 2019, Prof. Oresic co-chaired the 1st Gordon Research Conference on ‘Metabolomics and Human Health’ (Ventura, CA, USA). Previously, he also chaired the Keystone Symposium on Systems Biology of Lipid Metabolism (2015; Breckenridge, CO, USA).
