The National Heart and Lung Institute

The National Heart and Lung Institute is an Institute of Imperial College London, Faculty of Medicine based on sites at Royal Brompton and Harefield, Hammersmith, St Mary’s, South Kensington and Charing Cross. The Institute has, as its central interest, all aspects of heart, lung and cardiovascular disease and includes sections working in respiratory, cardiovascular and molecular medicine. Professor Tony Magee is an established leader in the field of lipid modification of proteins and has made major contributions in protein prenylation (co-discovering the prenylation of Ras proteins), protein acylation (of Ras proteins and Src family kinases) and lipid rafts (identifying a key role in T cell receptor signaling). His current interests are in the enzymes catalyzing acylation of cytoplasmic and secreted proteins, in the functional role of protein acylation e.g. in lipid rafts and signalling, and in novel applications of advanced light microscopy imaging.

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
