4-year PhD Studentship: Sticky but not sweet: deciphering how Streptococcus bacteria drive clot formation and heart disease

Heart disease is the leading cause of mortality in the developed world. Viridans group Streptococcus bacteria (VGS) are a major cause of infective endocarditis (IE), a severe form of heart disease characterised by clot formation on heart valves[1,2]. Read more

Characterising congenital heart disease variants in Drosophila

Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common congenital defect affecting approximately 1% of live births contributing to a significance incidence of birth-defect related mortality. Read more

Cellular protein quality control in diabetes-associated heart disease: The insight into mechanisms and therapeutic potentials

Cardiovascular complications are the leading causes of diabetes mortality. With the exception of vascular and valvular injuries, diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a distinct myocardial disease, which is characterised by abnormal cellular metabolism and defects in organelles function, leading to impaired cardiac function.

Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences

The Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences (ICAMS) is a Research intensive Institute that focusses on cardiac, vascular and metabolic diseases and are proud to host world-leading basic and clinical scientists in these areas. Read more

The non-coding genome in cardiovascular disease

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Inherited DNA sequence variants play a role in conferring risk for disease, yet we can only predict the harmful effects of mutations in the protein-encoding portion of a gene. 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 routine follow-up of complex cardiac conditions

Many complex cardiac conditions require lifelong surveillance, the optimal frequency of which is often not evidence based. In the post-covid19 era the need for social distancing places burden on the physical hospital estate. Read more

A Multi-Omics approach to understanding cardiovascular risk in patients with End-Stage Kidney Disease

Background. End-stage Kidney failure, also known as End-Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD), is the final, irreversible stage of chronic kidney disease (CKD), where kidney function has worsened to the point that the kidneys can no longer function independently. Read more

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

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
