CELL METABOLISM FOR HEALTH
Metabolism is the most fundamental force driving and sustaining life
At Metafora, we leverage our knowledge and understanding of cellular metabolism to develop
innovative and impactful solutions that change patients’ lives
What we do
We are made up of cells that require nutrients for their survival and function.
While metabolism is life’s engine, nutrients are its fuel.
deciphers how cells use key nutrients to fuel their metabolism. We are developing a unique, powerful In-Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) platform able to detect and characterize single cell energetics to establish a timely and precise diagnosis, and actionable therapeutic monitoring.
Our innovation stems from research at CNRS leading academic labs, in close collaboration with health providers. We have financial support from the European Commission and Bpifrance.
Abnormal cell metabolism plays a key role in numerous disorders.
Our first IVD test is already changing children’s lives
Metabolic reprogramming is a hallmark of tumor cells
Proper metabolic fitness is key to immune cells fates and functions
