Novel diagnostics to assess the impact of turbulent flow in cardiovascular disease

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Recently, turbulence in blood flow has been linked with cardiovascular disease progression, however the underlying turbulence-related mechanisms are not well understood. Read more

Investigating the link between chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease.

Research interests/description of main research theme.  Patients with chronic kidney disease are 40% more likely to develop cardiovascular disease, however, mechanisms driving the cardiovascular pathogenesis are unclear. Read more

Network-based predictive modelling of cardiovascular disease risk

The risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) is orchestrated by multiple factors. QRISK models (currently QRISK3) have been used in the UK to estimate CVD risk within the next 10 years for individuals without CVD. Read more

Application and development of bioinformatics and network theory methods in cardiovascular disease research and pharmacovigilance

To be able to discover novel drug targets we aim to develop software based on network theoretic approaches that are capable to identify mediators and pathways involved in the pathomechanism of various cardiovascular diseases by the analysis of datasets assessed with high throughput molecular biological techniques (e.g. Read more

Examining the mechanisms that cause cardiovascular disease by studying the heart or adipose tissue

Heart failure has a serious impact on our society and once diagnosed has a poor survival rate. In the United Kingdom, there are about 1.5 million people living with the after-effects of a heart attack. Read more

Investigating the mechanisms for cardiac fibrosis development and reversal

Research interests/description of main research theme. Fibrosis is a hard to treat condition of major socioeconomic importance, with ~45% of all deaths in the developed world being attributed to some type of chronic fibro-proliferative disease and is exemplified by heart disease. Read more

Cellular signalling mechanisms in iPSC-derived cardiovascular cells

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) offer an advanced platform for disease modelling, drug discovery, and regenerative therapies. Read more

Repurposing and enriching cardiovascular risk prediction model to identify people at risk of cancer – UCL (part of Health Data Research UK’s Big Data for Complex Disease Driver Programme)

Risk-stratified management of cardiovascular disease (CVD), where people without established disease receive preventative interventions and monitoring based on their 10-years predicted risk, has been highly successful to ensure healthcare resources are allocated to those most likely to benefit. Read more

Investigating a novel exercise intervention in peripheral artery disease

This funded PhD project will be based in the Vascular Physiology Laboratory within the School of Biomedical Sciences. It aims to investigate a novel exercise intervention to improve vascular and functional outcomes in patients with peripheral artery disease. Read more

Platelets in health, ageing and disease: new diagnostics and treatments

Platelets are small blood cells that play a vital role in the chronic and acute progression of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD), and also have roles in immunity, inflammation, cancer metastasis, Alzheimer's disease and a range of infections, such as dengue, HIV-1, malaria, and COVID-19. Read more

Extracellular vesicles in health and disease

Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is associated with classical and emerging risk factors of cardiovascular disease (CVD), correlates with disease progression and is an independent predictor of the risk of future cardiovascular events. Read more
