Background and activities

Bruheim group focuses on Deep Phenotyping of prokaryotic and eukaryotic model systems using Advanced Cultivation Technology and Mass Spectrometry based Metabolomics, Fluxomics and Lipidomics ( Bruheim is scientific leader of the NT faculty Mass Spectrometry lab ( We have developed a suite of target and non-target MS methods ( which we apply on a range of biological model systems and research questions. 



Bruheim is Deputy Head of Department with responsibilities in Education and is the leader of the 2-years and 5-years study programs in Biotechnology (MSBIOTECH and MBIOT5). He teaches in TBT4140 Biochemical Engineering, TBT4500 Biotechnology Specialization Project, TBT4110 Microbiology, BT3220 Advanced Biotechnology, TKP4170/71 Process Designs, Projects Biochemical Engineering Plant Design,  BT8105 Prokaryote Molecular Biology and Synthetic Biology, MEDT8010 Metabolomics - Methods and Applications
