Corinne M. Spickett, PhD

Dr Corinne Spickett has been a Reader at Aston University since 2011, having moved from the University of Strathclyde after 18 years. Her first two degrees (B.A. and D.Phil.) were in biochemistry at Oxford University. Her research expertise is in the analysis of phospholipid oxidation by electrospray mass spectrometry and the biological effects of oxidized lipids, especially as relating to atherosclerosis and inflammation, and she has published extensively in this field. More recently, she expanded her research to include analysis of protein oxidation and formation of lipoxidation products during inflammation, and has been developing label-free, semi-targetted approaches to their identification in biological samples. Dr Spickett is currently Treasurer of the Society for Free Radical Research Europe and a member of the Steering Committee of the International HNE-Club, having been its Secretary from 2004 to 2010. She is also very active in European collaborations, and has been a Workgroup Leader in the COST Actions B35 on Lipid Peroxidation Associated Disorders and CM1001 on Chemistry of non-enzymatic protein modification. Dr Spickett is also a member of the Society for Free Radical Biology and Medicine, The Biochemical Society, and a Fellow of the Society of Biology.
