About Matej Oresic

Matej Orešič holds a PhD in biophysics from Cornell University. He is a professor in medical sciences with a specialization in systems medicine at Örebro Universitry, group leader in systems medicine at the Turku Centre for Biotechnology, University of Turku, and guest professor at the Oil Crops Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (Wuhan, Hubei, P. R. China). His main research areas are metabolomics applications in biomedical research and integrative bioinformatics. He is particularly interested in the identification of disease vulnerabilities associated with different metabolic phenotypes and the underlying mechanisms linking these vulnerabilities with the development of specific disorders or their co-morbidities, with specific focus on obesity and diabetes and their co-morbidities.

Dr. Orešič has also initiated the popular MZmine open source project, leading to popular software for metabolomics data processing. Previosuly, Dr. 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. In 2016, Dr. Oresic received the Lifetime Honorary Fellow award from the Metabolomics Society. He is co-founder and currently chair of the board of the Nordic Metabolomics Society.

Dr. Oresic recently chaired two international metabolomics meetings:
