Dr Jordi Lopez-Tremoleda, DVM, PhD, FHEA, MRCVS
QMUL University Veterinarian and Senior Lecturer in Trauma, Animal Science and Welfare
Centre: Neuroscience and Trauma
As the University Veterinarian I provide advice on animal health and care for the animals used in research procedures at Queen Mary, supporting veterinary care and advising on experimental methodologies to promote the implantation of the 3Rs principles and safeguarding the welfare of the animals. I also support the training and education of Queen Mary staff undertaking animal experimentation procedures, advising on the implementation of the animal license projects in accordance with the UK/EU regulatory requirements.
As a Senior Lecturer at the Centre for Trauma Sciences, I oversee the development and validation of experimental models for effective trauma translation. My research brings together complex models of trauma, haemorrhage, shock, coagulopathy and central nervous injury to facilitate the full translation of experimental work into clinical practice. Having worked extensively in preclinical imaging, I am also very interested in the implementation of forefront imaging modalities in our models, to maximise their translational efficacy and to support the development of new biomarkers.
I also hold an MSc in Bioethics and I am currently a member of the Animal Welfare and Ethical Review Body at Queen Mary. I am also Editor in Chief of Laboratory Animals and sit on the Council of the Laboratory Animals Veterinary Association (LAVA) and Laboratory Animas Science Association (LASA).
As a FHEA I also teach on various BSc, iBSc, MSc and PBL programmes within Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, associated to preclinical modelling, imaging technologies and animal welfare and regulations.
