Dr Drupad Trivedi is a biomedical scientist fascinated by ever evolving analytical chemistry and chemometrics apporoaches. Moved from London to Manchester answering one interview question very correctly "Why leave London, and come to grey cloudy and often rainy Manchester?"

Because I like silver linings. 

Every datum has a story to tell and that's where his research focuses. Finding the needle in the haystack but also differentiating haystacks to know where the needle may be. His expertise lies in global metabolomics analysis of biological systems combined with data driven interrogation. 


Dr Trivedi graduated in Biomedical Sciences at Middlesex University in 2008 and immediately followed it up with a PhD in Metabolomics at Middlesex University, London. He completed his doctoral thesis on discovery of Down syndrome biomarkers in maternal urine for prenatal screening of the chromosomal abnormality in 2012 and then worked as a post-doctoral research fellow at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in the same year. Dr Trivedi has worked as an honorary research fellow for ELK-Foundation of health and biomedical research extending his interest in personalised medicine. Dr Trivedi, also advicesd and aided in experimental design and method development for metabolomics research at MAP, Diagnostics, UK – for biomarker discovery to screen and diagnose multiple prenatal chromosomal abnormalities during pregnancy.

Dr Trivedi joined Professor Roy Goodacre at Manchester Institute of Biotechnology in 2013 working on CRUK funded cancer metabolomics projects along with many other multidisciplinary areas involving metabolomics and chemometrics analyses. In 2017, Dr Drupad Trivedi joined Professor Perdita Barran to work on the Parkinson’s diagnostic project. Dr Drupad Trivedi led the metabolomics project for Parkinson’s diseases diagnostics funded by Michael J Fox Foundation and Parkinson’s UK. Dr Trivedi led the metabolome and volatilome exploration for understanding key differences in Parkinson’s skin surfaces. 

In 2020, Dr Trivedi was appointed as a Lecturer in Analytical and Measurements Sciences in the School of Science and Engineering.
