Biobank samples received by Dr Karl Morten
The UKMEB is delighted to announce that this week it delivered a batch of samples to Dr Karl Morten PhD, senior researcher and laboratory manager at the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford University.
This sample release represents the culmination of a year’s fundraising and planning, began by the ME Association in their Christmas appeal last year.
Dr Morten’s research will use mass spectrometry techniques (among others) to investigate metabolites, chemical clues that have been left behind after metabolism in the cells of people with ME.
The UKMEB is delighted to have partnered with Dr Morten, Oxford University and the MEA in making this exciting new study a reality.
