The primary focus of my position is the scientific and operational management of our murine metabolic and/or cardio metabolic phenotyping programmes. This involves ongoing assessment and optimisation of the teams’ resources (financial, technological, and human) required to carry out our research according to appropriate timelines and defined budgetary targets.
Through the use and dissemination of scientific evidence, appropriate metrics, key performance indicators, knowledge, and experience, my role is involved in the identification and mitigation of process failures in order to improve workflow and productivity, ensure incorporation of best practices, maximize research quality, and ultimately oversee and increase the capabilities for the scientific output of the team.
Key interests in the context of obesity, diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease:
