TMIC (The Metabolomics Innovation Centre) was formed in 2011 with the vision of becoming one of the world’s premier metabolomics facilities, offering the widest possible range of cutting-edge, comprehensive, quantitative metabolomic research capabilities and services. It operates as a distributed network platform through an administrative support team and 8 “Nodes” or laboratories distributed among the University of Alberta (UofA – 4 Nodes), the University of Victoria (UVic – 1 Node), McMaster University (1 Node), McGill University (1 Node), and University of Calgary (1 Node).
TMIC’s vision is:To improve life through the power of metabolomics.
TMIC's mission is:To catalyze innovation and translate metabolomics from the laboratory to real-world use by creating novel technologies, providing cutting-edge analytic services, sharing foundational data resources, and equipping the next generation of scientists and users. The ultimate goal is to enable the creation of a strong metabolomics industry in Canada and generate social and economic benefits for Canadians.
