  • 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.

Following her Novo Nordisk fellowship, Charlotte was appointed as Scientific Liaison Manager at the Drug Discovery Unit within the University of Dundee in December 2018. In her new role, Charlotte will continue to engage with academia and industrial partners to source and evaluate potential pipeline projects, prepare project proposals for review by Scientific Advisory Boards and support research grant applications.
