  • Investigating whether mitochondrial dysfunction plays a major role in ME/CFS

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 and I am currently investigating whether mitochondrial dysfunction plays a role in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
