Jules Griffin, PhD

University of Cambridge
Molecular Profiling

Dr. Griffin’s expertise focuses on metabolomics and its application to functional genomics/toxicology. Metabolomics is the large-scale analysis of metabolites, and this process of generating a metabolic profile to follow a pathophysiological insult or stimulus has been highly successful at distinguishing the effects of genetic modifications and disease states in a range of organisms, including man. Dr. Griffin's group uses high resolution 1H Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry in conjunction with pattern recognition techniques to define metabolic profiles characteristic of the disease/ pathology being investigated.
