Professor Dan Burke PhD
Dan Burke, Emeritus Professor of Pharmaceutical Metabolism is an expert on the metabolism, toxicity and interaction of drugs, environmental chemicals and natural compounds. He specialises in the Cytochrome P450 enzyme system. Today, he is considered the father of the Cytochrome P450 enzyme system. He gained a rst in biochemistry from London University and a PhD in Drug Metabolism from the University of Surrey. Prof. Burke served on the faculty of the Aberdeen University medical school for nearly twenty years before becoming the Head of the School of Pharmacy at De Montfort University. During the 1970’s he invented the EROD (ethoxyresorun-O-deethylase) assays. They are the premier method used to quantify the activity of CYP enzymes.
