About us

VG Opening-2

The team is a translational group of clinical and non-clinical scientists.

The skills in the groups are diverse including:

  • Clinical Pharmacology
  • State-of-the-art Analytical Chemistry
  • Bioinformatics
  • Statistics

Our overall pipeline revolves around establishing new hypotheses from a priori knowledge or generation of data from non targeted discovery experiments using high resolution analytical techniques (including Liquid Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry).

These hypotheses are tested on large cohorts of patient populations provided from the  archived cohorts or obtained from the NIHR-Biomedical Research Unit (BRU) facility within the Cardiovascular Research Centre (CRVC) at Glenfield Hospital to provide robust data for clinical translation of biomarkers.

The group has strong collaborations within the Department of Cardiovascular Sciences in both basic and translational research. There are also collaborations with several departments within the University (Departments of Cancer Studies, Physics and Astronomy and Chemistry). In addition, there are long established collaborations with national and international groups.
