Martine Abboud from Lebanon is a Junior Research Fellow at the University of Oxford.

Her doctoral research involved the use of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to study two classes of enzymes which are involved in important biological processes. She studied the bacterial β-lactamases which are involved in antibiotic resistance and the human 2-oxoglutarate dependent oxygenases which are involved in oxygen sensing and epigenetics. Her work has led to novel method applications, the mechanistic understanding of these enzymes, and the development of inhibitors for them. She is currently working on metabolic enzymes involved in cancer.

Martine participated in the 68th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting.
