Manuel Mayr's Biography

Manuel Mayr, Professor, King's College University of London

Manuel Mayr qualified in Medicine from the University of Innsbruck (Austria) in 1999, where he graduated “sub ausspiciis praesidentis”, the highest distinction awarded for academic education. He soon decided that his interests lay in research and therefore took up full-time research training in 2001, when he moved to St George’s Hospital Medical School to undertake a PhD with Professor Qingbo Xu. His PhD was awarded by the University of London in 2005, on the topic of “Cardiovascular Proteomics: Linking Proteomic and Metabolomic Changes”. He obtained a BHF Intermediate Research Fellowship in 2005 and in 2006 moved to King’s College London as Lecturer in the Cardiovascular Division. In 2008, he was successful in obtaining a BHF Senior Research Fellowship and this was recently renewed for a second term. In parallel, he achieved promotion to Senior Lecturer in 2008, to Reader in 2010, and to Professor in 2011. 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), and the Outstanding Achievement Award by the European Society of Cardiology Council for Basic Cardiovascular Science (2013).

The bulk of cardiovascular disease is not explained by traditional risk factors. The importance of individual lipid species may have been underestimated by an unwarranted focus on lipid classes, including measures of total triglycerides, total cholesterol, LDL and HDL cholesterol.
