The role of the spliceosome protein Prpf8 in embryonic development

Errors that occur during cardiac development cause congenital heart defects (CHD). Despite the prevalence of CHD, the developmental processes that ensure the heart forms correctly are still being elucidated. Read more

Wearable Sensing Techniques for Arm-based ECG and Bioimpedance Long-term Monitoring of Cardiac Pumping Effectiveness in Heart Failure and Atrial Fibrillation Assessment Methods.

  Research Group: Engineering
Atrial fibrillation (AF) and heart failure (HF) are often manifest as coexistent conditions increasingly recognised as global cardiovascular epidemics over the last decade and expected to increase in prevalence over the coming years. Read more

A high throughput system for measuring the mechanical properties of human cardiac tissues

Interested in a rewarding career in bioengineering? Get sponsored to do life-changing research in New Zealand. The mechanical properties of cardiac tissues are often quantified in experiments that manipulate muscle length and measure response parameters such as strain, stress, and stiffness. Read more

MSC BY RESEARCH - Preserving t-tubule function in adult cardiac myocytes in short-term culture

Invaginations of the sarcolemma of adult cardiac myocytes known as transverse (or t-) tubules account for up to 65% of the total sarcolemma surface and play a key role in excitation-contraction (EC) coupling and cell signalling (Hong & Shaw, 2017). Read more

Mechanisms underlying the effects of activated protein C (APC) in cardiac muscle

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
APC is an anticoagulant enzyme that also exerts antithrombotic, anti-inflammatory, antiapoptotic and a variety of other cytoprotective effects in different tissues, where the mechanism of action is thought to involve the endothelial protein C receptor (EPCR) and a protease activated receptor (PAR).

Disease mechanisms in the heart

We are seeking talented, motivated students with a passion for research in inherited cardiac conditions (cardiomyopathies) and biomechanical stress signalling led by Dr Katja Gehmlich (https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/staff/profiles/cardiovascular-sciences/gehmlich-katja.aspx). Read more

Development of Cardiac Myocyte Model for Pharmacological interrogation of Ligand Bias

Despite years of education, cardiovascular diseases are still one of the leading causes of death in the UK, and as such it is now common for much of the adult population (~25% in the UK) to be taking either beta-blockers or angiotensin receptor blockers to counteract many problems associated with this (e.g. Read more

Epigenetic regulation in heart failure and cardiac sudden death

A large proportion of heart failure patients die from cardiac sudden death (SCD), a direct result of lethal ventricular arrhythmias, which is the principal cause of mortality from heart disease worldwide and remains a major unresolved public health problem. Read more
