 Prof. Peter Meikle

Comprehensive genetic analysis of the human lipidome identifies novel loci controlling lipid homeostasis with links to coronary artery disease

Professor Peter Meikle is the Head of the Systems Biology Domain, Co Lead of the Obesity and Lipids Program and is Head of the Metabolomics Laboratory at the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute. He is Editor in Chief of Metabolites, the official Journal of the International Metabolomics Society. His research has a focus on the dysregulation of lipid metabolism associated with metabolic diseases including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular and Alzheimer’s disease and its relationship to the pathogenesis of these disease states. This work is leading to new approaches to early diagnosis and risk assessment, and to the development of new lipid modulating therapies for chronic disease.
