Presenter Bio: Hi, my name is Helen and I am in my final few months as a PhD student at the University of Leicester. My PhD thesis is titled "Investigation of novel metabolomic biomarkers of heart failure". I have pursued two different biomarkers in my PhD. One amino acid and one lysophosphatidylcholine. Both of these I have discovered in untargeted work and then progressed onto quantifying them in a large clinical cohort of heart failure patients.
In April, when my thesis is finished, I will be moving across the Atlantic to join the Thomas lab at the University of Minnesota for 6 months. Here I will use proteomics for the first time, as my PhD has been predominantly metabolomics with a little bit of lipidomics.
