A/Prof. Peter J Meikle, Conference Chair

A/Prof Peter Meikle is a NHMRC Senior Research Fellow, Obesity and Diabetes Program Leader and Head of the Metabolomics Laboratory at Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute. He is Editor-in-Chief of Metabolites and holds affiliate positions at the University of Melbourne, Monash University and the University of Sydney. The Metabolomics Laboratory has a focus on the dyslipidemia and altered lipid metabolism associated with obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease and its relationship to the pathogenesis of these disease states. This work is leading to new approaches to early diagnosis and risk assessment as well as the development of new lipid modulating therapies for chronic disease.
