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 (http://www.ntnu.edu/biotech/research/microbial-biotechnology/bruheim-lab). Bruheim is scientific leader of the NT faculty Mass Spectrometry lab (http://www.ntnu.edu/nt-mslab). We have developed a suite of target and non-target MS methods (http://www.ntnu.edu/nt-mslab/metabolomics) 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
