Research Aim

Investigating Vitamin D as a prognostic marker in acute myocardial infarction


Investigating Vitamin D as a prognostic marker in acute myocardial infarction

I run the Thermo Q Exactive within the cardiovascular department and the wider college within the University Of Leicester as a tool for identifying novel biomarkers in cardiovascular disease. I carry out post processing analysis of mass spec data and data sets, using Scaffold, Protein Centre, MaxQuant, Mascot, PD 2.0, Progenesis and Protein lynx global server.
