Senior SYNLAB Toxicologist Awarded Master’s Degree in Medical Toxicology

7th September 2020 – Sarah Probert, Senior Toxicologist at SYNLAB Laboratory Services, has recently been awarded with a MSc in Medical Toxicology with distinction.

Sarah has been studying part-time, fitting in her studies around her full-time job at SYNLAB Laboratory Services, since August 2016.

The qualification is a two-stage process which first involves passing the postgraduate diploma. It is only once this has been awarded that a student can progress to the master’s degree. Sarah was awarded a distinction in her Post Graduate Medical Diploma, Medical Toxicology, in August 2018 and has been working on her master’s since then.

In June 2020 Sarah submitted a dissertation on “A systematic review for the determination of a dose response relationship for impairment of driving from blood opioid concentration” and gained a distinction in Master of Science in Medical Toxicology from Cardiff University.

Samantha Osmond, Head of Toxicology at SYNLAB Laboratory Services commented “Sarah has been a valuable member of the laboratory team for over 5 years – this award reinforces her capability and commitment to her profession and is testament to the quality of our people”.

SYNLAB Laboratory Services supports the learning and development of all employees, enabling staff to share their expertise with customers large and small, to help to identify, deter and rule out drug and alcohol misuse in the workplace.
