Research project:
The project focuses on cell culture models of oxidative stress (primary cardiomyocytes, epithelial cell and THP1). I use LC-MS/MS techniques to identify oxidized lipids and lipid-protein adducts in cellular extracts. Using complimentary techniques (fluorescent microscopy and biochemical assays) I am  going to study how oxidation can cause changes in cellular localization and functions of target lipids and protein.
