A key objective of Professor Holmes’ Fellowship will be to create a framework for delivering high quality metabolic phenotyping data to academics, clinicians and industry to serve the emerging area of precision medicine and to bridge the translational medicine gap between research and clinical implementation.
Dr Loo has expertise and experience in epidemiological studies and in data analytics for metabolic phenotyping (particularly data modelling and visualisation), and specific phenomics research interests in nutrition and health.
She is currently a Senior Lecturer at the Medway School of Pharmacy, Universities of Greenwich and Kent. She and Professor Holmes have been research collaborators since Professor Holmes was one of her PhD supervisors.
Her Fellowship Project will help to build critical mass in phenomics data analytics in Western Australia, including for Professor Holmes’ project. Dr Loo’s work will also involve complementary research in personalised nutrition to deliver new knowledge of dietary influence on human metabolism and the microbiome in health/disease, and provide a translational bridge to the food science industry.
