Postdoctoral Research Assistant

I graduated in 2009 with a BSc in Forensic and Pharmaceutical Analysis from LIT. The following year I completed an MSc in Toxicology at the National University of Ireland. In October 2010 I moved to Oxford to start my DPhil at the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology under the supervision of Dr. Karl Morten. The Morten groups research interests focus on the role of mitochondria in health and disease. The mitochondria are key players in numerous disease states including cancer. My DPhil investigated the Warburg Effect and it's role in the metabolism of paediatric glioma cell lines.

Upon completion of my DPhil I took up employment with a drug discovery CRO where my role involved investigating the ADMET/DMPK properties of potential new drug compounds. After 2 years in this role I moved back to academia.

I am currently working on the MetaCell-TM project H2020 project. The consortium of Luxcel Biosciences LtdBMG LABTECH GmbH and Ncardia aims to develop a physiologically relevant cell-based assay platform for metabolism in preclinical drug discovery and development, creating the Gold Standard, within a laboratory in vitro setting. This project is supported by the Morten group, Oxford University, UK and the group of Hector Keun, Imperial College London, UK.
