When asked to comment on his research, Dr. Nicholson said, “The world faces many emergent medical threats and healthcare challenges—our mission is to apply state of the art analytical technologies to address current and future unmet medical needs in ways that result in clinical actionability” He added, "The translational demands are substantial, but large scale metabolic phenotyping approaches are now proving effective in the real world of patient care, creating both new diagnostics and prognostics but also in defining population health with new data models that will improve disease prevention in the future.”
Professor Nicholson obtained his PhD in Biochemistry from London University. He was appointed Full Professor of Chemistry, London University and Head of Biological Chemistry at Imperial College London; then Head of the Department of Surgery and Cancer and Director of the UK National Phenome Centre.
