A day in the life of … a Metabolic Biochemist

The Beat podcast is designed for healthcare professionals only and is brought to you by Nutricia.

In this mini-series we explore the world of metabolic medicine, meeting the people from the multi disciplinary team who deliver the service. Through these episodes we hear what a typical day in the life of these experts is like, what they have learnt in their career and what is still to be discovered in the fascinating world of Metabolics.

In this episode of The Beat podcast, host Dr James Nurse, Consultant Paediatrician, is joined by Dr Rachel Carling, Metabolic Biochemist, to discuss the important role that science plays in metabolic medicine. They discuss what is involved during new born screening tests, the importance of a high quality bloodspot and what the future hold for biochemistry in IMD.
