Williams, Tim

Tim qualified from the University of Cambridge, and following a year working in small animal practice, he undertook a PhD in the Feline Research Group at the Royal Veterinary College, London. He subsequently joined the Department of Veterinary Medicine, University of Cambridge, first as Senior Clinical Training Scholar (resident) and subsequently Lecturer in Clinical Pathology.   

He is currently a visiting research fellow in the Karet laboratory (Cambridge Institute of Medical Research), where he is investigating two properties of exosomes that are relevant to renal and urinary tract disorders, namely; the utility of exosomes as a source of biomarkers of renal diseases in human patients with inherited renal tubulopathies, and the clinical significance of the bactericidal activity of urinary exosomes.  

Tim is also interested in novel biomarkers for chronic kidney disease (CKD) in cats which might allow veterinarians to detect CKD at an earlier stage.
