Lisa Heather is an Associate Professor and British Heart Foundation Fellow at the University of Oxford. She completed an undergraduate degree in Medical Biochemistry at the University of Surrey. She studied for her DPhil at the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at the University of Oxford, investigating the effects of heart failure on cardiac substrate metabolism. Lisa was awarded a RD Lawrence Early Career Fellowship by Diabetes UK in 2011, followed by a British Heart Foundation Basic Science Intermediate Fellowship in 2018. Her research group studies metabolism in the type 2 diabetic heart. Her current research focuses on the signalling roles metabolites play within the heart, and how these signalling pathways become dysfunctional in type 2 diabetes. She has received the Innovators in Diabetes Award, Lilly Diabetes Award and the Bayliss-Starling Award from the Physiological Society.
