Inter- and intra-cellular signalling in the development of fibrosis in the hypertensive heart

Project Overview. Heart failure is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. In terms of volume, the normal heart is composed mostly of terminally-differentiated contractile cells (cardiomyocytes), responsible for the pump action of the heart. 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

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

PhD Studentship Opportunity: Identifying the mechanisms via which the mitochondrial unfolded protein response (UPRmt) protects the stressed heart

Despite recent therapeutic advances, there are ~26 million patients worldwide (1 million in the UK) estimated to suffer from heart failure, and 5-year mortality associated with the disease is currently reaching 50% in the UK. Read more
