Division of Clinical Chemistry  
The Division of Clinical Chemistry is a joint academic and NHS service unit based at the Queen's Medical Centre. The research in our department is an integral component of the Institute of Genetics, and further details can be found by clicking on the links below.  

Noor Kalsheker studies humoral control of genes of the serine proteinase inhibitor family which regulate key biological pathways and how functional genetic variants contribute to complex diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and chronic lung disease.

Linda Morgan is investigating the genetic basis of two related disorders of pregnancy - pre-eclampsia and fetal growth restriction. Identification of susceptibility genes provides valuable insights into the mechanism of disease leading to preventative or therapeutic strategies.

Kevin Morgan aims to identify genetic factors that influence susceptibility to Alzheimer's or lung disease, thereby possibly highlighting areas suitable for therapeutic intervention. Genomic and proteomic approaches are being used to identify new candidate genes and biomarkers.
