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

Funded PhD Project: How maternal behaviour and larval environment influence disease transmission in mosquitoes: a modelling and experimental approach

This project will be part of the Bristol-Macquarie Cotutelle Programme, funded by EPSRC. It will be jointly supervised by Dr Sinead English at the University of Bristol, UK and A/Prof Fleur Ponton at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. Read more

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Diseases affecting the bowel such as colorectal cancer (CRC) and the inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease are major global healthcare challenges in the 21st century. Read more

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

Selective targeting of furin for the treatment of fibrotic lung disease.

Furin, a proprotein convertase has been established as a therapeutic target across several disease areas to include chronic airways diseases and infectious disease, such as COVID-19 (reviewed in our recent publication, Douglas et al, 2023). Read more

Biomechanical signalling in human heart disease

About the Project. The human heart undergoes more than 2 billion beats throughout an individual's lifetime, with its rhythm precisely regulated by signalling events that continuously adapt to the biomechanical stress exerted on the ventricular walls. Read more

Understanding the role of adiponectin in kidney disease development at a population level

Reduced circulating adiponectin levels are associated with poor outcome in patients with diabetic kidney disease (DKD) (1). Adiponectin has been shown to be protective against the development of DKD in Type 2 diabetic models (2, 3, 4). Read more
