 Project objective

LipidDrive is a breakthrough cloud computing platform and mobile app that allows researchers in the growing field of lipidomics to process, store and share analytical data in a standardized format. Lipidomics is the study of lipid molecules in cells, tissues and biofluids. Due to its low cost, high accuracy and deep insights into cellular function, it has the potential to revolutionize medical science. However it is blocked by a lack of data standardization, processing capacity and collaboration. There are no common protocols for lipidomics data output. 70% of lipidomics data is incomparible, wasting €14 million in research costs annually. Tests require large computer processing power, which most researchers do not possess. There are few online resources for data collaboration. Addressing these challenges, LipidDrive is a cloud-based platform for high-quality lipidomics data analysis. Users upload mass spectrometry data sets, which are processed by algorithms to ensure quality control, and are output according to new data standards. LipidDrive’s cloud computing service processes high-throughput data in any format, replacing desktop-based software with limited capacity. It also provides an online resource of latest research, lipid and biomarker libraries, communication tools and APIs for third-party data utilization. LipidDrive is an unrivaled ICT service developed by Dr Kim Ekroos, a leading lipidomics expert. It will target researchers in universities, pharmaceutical and nutritional industries, and hospitals and clinics through direct sales and partnerships with hardware vendors. Demand and willingness to pay have been confirmed by interest from several large pharmaceutical companies. Lipidomics is expected to follow the growth path of proteomics, which is worth €20 billion annually. LipidDrive will become the most valuable online resource for this fast-emerging industry. The proposed feasibility study will test the technology and prepare for commercialization.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "LIPIDDRIVE" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
