2018 - 2021: Heart Healthy Salmon Nutraceuticals

This project was conducted as part of my PhD where I received a seed fund grant supported by the Ocean Frontier Institute (OFI), Nova Scotia Canada. Using this grant, I worked with the Functional Foods Laboratory with Prof Raymond Thomas and team to research at the Memorial University of Newfoundland Grenfell Campus, in Cornerbrook, Newfoundland. There, we investigated antioxidant capacity and polar lipid composition of novel antithrombotic salmon-derived nutraceuticals using C30 reversed-phase (C30RP) ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) coupled to high resolution accurate mass tandem mass spectrometry (HRAM-MS/MS). This project is currently under embargo due to a patent application, but it is hoped that the resulting research will be published by 2023. 

At the OFI Research Workshop in 2019, I gave a presentation on my findings and was runner-up in the poster category. 

I am very grateful to all my colleagues at the Thomas Lab: https://www.rthomaslipidgroup.com/meet-the-team
