After her graduation in June 2008, Agnes recommenced her work in the Bahn Lab as a PhD student , studying the complex interplay of metabolic disturbances in schizophrenia and other neuropsychiatric diseases. This project will also attempt to identify biomarkers related to these pathways for use in monitoring the effectiveness of established and novel therapeutic treatment strategies.

Agnes completed her PhD in Biotechnology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK Her work on a preclinical model for schizophrenia for the establishment of new therapeutic strategies involved the analysis of biological material using immunologic (ELISA, Western Blot), proteomic (LC-MSE) and metabolomic (NMR spectroscopy) approaches.
