  • Project: The effect of metformin on hepatic fatty acid partitioning: an investigation using human in vivo and in vitro cellular models


Charlotte was awarded a Novo Nordisk Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in 2014, working with Professor Leanne Hodson at the Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology & Metabolism (OCDEM). The focus of her fellowship involved understanding the impact metformin, an anti-diabetic drug, has on liver fat content in humans and understanding the mechanisms by which any changes may occur. This work has used a combination of in vitro and whole body human in vivo studies.

Charlotte completed her fellowship in 2018 and moved back to Dundee where her scientific career began as Scientific Liaison for the University’s Drug Discovery Unit (DDU). In August 2022 she was promoted to Head of Business development and leads the development and implementation of the Business strategy for the DDU across all its portfolios. Working closely with the Commercialisation Team in the University of Dundee Research and Innovations Services to help commercialise relevant opportunities through licencing deals, spin-out companies and industry collaborations.
