Newcastle University

Dr Mick Dunn is a physical / physical organic chemist with extensive experience of a range of modern mass spectrometric techniques, obtained through working in industrial, contract and academic laboratories.

He is responsible for the instigation and development of all of the mass spectrometry resources at the Newcastle University Medical Toxicology Centre.

He is engaged in a range of cross-disciplinary research activities covering the elucidation of cellular responses to toxic insults from exposure to environmental chemicals, drugs or ionising radiation.

This encompasses work on neurotoxicity, genotoxicity and hepatic toxicity and utilises proteomic, lipidomic and metabolomics methodologies to identify and quantify both biomarkers of exposure and biomarkers of effect.

Research work has been published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at national and international conferences.
