Harriet Pearsey is a first year full-time PhD student at University of Leicester, working within the Leicester Diabetes Centre at Leicester General Hospital.
Her PhD is based around novel metabolic and protein markers of glucose metabolism, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes in high risk populations.
This talk will be regarding the work Harriet has performed in the first few months of her PhD, investigating the role of the novel adipokine and lipid-mobilizing factor, zinc-alpha-2-glycoprotein, in type 2 diabetes. This talk will provide information on the studies conducted, that are ongoing, including the current collaboration with Liverpool University and future avenues of investigation.
This talk is suitable for any individual with an interest in biochemical analysis of markers relating to cardio metabolic disease and lifestyle modifications.
