British Heart Foundation Professor of Cardiovascular Proteomics
Manuel Mayr qualified in Medicine in Austria in 1999. Upon completion of his Ph.D. in London on combining proteomics and metabolomics in 2005, he achieved promotion to Professor at King’s College London in 2011.
In 2017, he has been awarded a British Heart Foundation Personal Chair for Cardiovascular Proteomics. His group uses proteomics in combination with other -omics technologies to integrate biological information in disease-specific networks that drive pathophysiological changes. While studying molecular interactions has been a research focus for many years and has provided important insight into biology, the attention has now shifted towards a more integrative network biology approach (Nat Rev Cardiol. 2021;18(5):313-330).
His academic achievements have been recognised by the inaugural Michael Davies Early Career Award of the British Cardiovascular Society (2007), the inaugural Bernard and Joan Marshall Research Excellence Prize of the British Society for Cardiovascular Research (2010), the Outstanding Achievement Award by the European Society of Cardiology Council for Basic Cardiovascular Science (2013) and the President’s Distinguished Lecture of the International Society for Heart Research (2022).
