Dr Amanda Lam

Principle Clinical Scientist

I am a Principal Clinical Scientist in the Neurometabolic Unit, where we measure mitochondrial respiratory chain enzymes in muscle and liver biopsies.   I have a PhD in Neurochemistry from the Institute of Neurology, UCL and have undergone postdoctoral research training in the Department of Clinical Neuroscience, UCL undertaking research into Parkinson’s disease and mitochondria.  I completed my pre-registration Clinical Scientist training in Biochemistry at UCLH and have a diploma from the Royal College of Pathologist.  I have extensive experience of specialist metabolic disease testing gained from my clinical scientist position in the Department of Chemical Pathology at Great Ormond Street Hospital.  I have a joint contract at UCLH and GOSH enabling close working relationships between the diagnostic biochemistry laboratories at both sites.
