FEBS Letters is renowned both for its quality of content and speed of production. Bringing together the most important developments in the molecular biosciences, FEBS Letters provides an international forum for Reviews, Research Letters and Research Articles that merit urgent publication.
Our lab uses genetically modified mouse models and a combination of cell biology, molecular biology, and biochemistry techniques to study the role of altered mitochondrial dysfunction and metabolism in human diseases. A primary analytical tool of the group is metabolomics, which enables the parallel quantification of hundreds of small molecule metabolites. The team also uses computational approaches to integrate datasets from multi-dimensional analyses, including metabolomics, proteomics, and transcriptomics, with the aim to model aging-related disorders and to generate mechanistic hypotheses that will be cross validated experimentally.
The Biochemical Society and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Portland Press, work to support innovation and the advancement of the molecular biosciences. This is achieved through the circulation of knowledge and the sharing of ideas and research across the scientific community for the benefit of society at large. Key member benefits include: access to grants and bursaries, reduced registration fees at Biochemical Society conferences, training events and workshops, and personal online access to the Biochemical Journal and Biochemical Society Transactions.
I write a blog called Total Internal Reflection about the human side of science. Postings are generally either opinion/commentary (either serious or silly) or "How To" pieces aimed at improving young scientists' soft skills.
A longer biography and manifesto are on the blog here.
The International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology unites scientists in 75 countries or regions through a society, national council, or academy of sciences.
