  Feline hyperaldosteronism: immunohistochemical, genetic and functional characterisation of the adrenal gland in hypertensive cats
  Prof H Syme, Prof M Brown
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypertension is a common problem in geriatric cats, particularly those with renal disease and often results in blindness. Improved understanding of the pathogenesis of feline hypertension could result in earlier identification of those cats that are most at risk, or lead to novel targets for treatment.
