Investigating microvascular dysfunction in sickle cell disease (SCD)

Cerebrovascular disease is a leading cause of mortality worldwide, with numbers on the rise. It is a serious complication of a number of disease states, including sickle cell disease (SCD), an inherited autosomal recessive disorder, resulting from a single amino acid substitution in the haemoglobin β chain.

15 PhD Fellowships within H2020 Marie Curie programme MINDSHIFT

 Would you like to increase our knowledge in understanding the dynamic interactions between vascular and endocrine pathways in hypertension and boost… Read more

Impact of normal and premature ageing on human macro- and microvasculature

  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
The global population is growing, with the number of births consistently higher than the number of deaths. This is because people are living for longer, due at least in part to improved lifestyle and healthcare provision. Read more

Utilising the MyHeart Counts smartphone app to determine the impact of COVID-19 on cardiovascular health of patients and healthcare workers

The UK has one of the highest global rates of COVID-19 per capita. The prevalence and manifestation of acute infection and the long-term consequences of COVID-19 on patients with cardiovascular disease, and at-risk healthcare workers remains unclear. Read more

Tackling neurovascular dysfunction in dementia: a cell biology and biomaterials approach

Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, vascular and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, pericytes, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.

Understanding small artery dysfunction in obesity

Obesity related hypertension is one of the defining pandemics of the 21st century. As weight increases, blood pressure rises. Over half the UK population is obese or overweight and as a result a quarter of the population have hypertension. Read more

Characterisation of the role of Panx1/Panx2 in primary endothelial cells

Pannexins are a family of proteins that are evolutionary related to the gap-junction forming proteins, innexins (1). Three members have been identified, Panx1, Panx2 and Panx3, and they show distinct tissue distribution. Read more

The effect of age on arterial remodelling: relevance to atherosclerotic plaque progression and aneurysm formation

Brief Rationale. Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory vascular disease involving plaques composed of lipid-dense cores filled with activated, apoptotic and necrotic inflammatory and vascular cells coated with a fibrous cap. Read more


Supervisor(s). Dr Ali Khurram (School of Clinical Dentistry, Sheffield), Dr Pavitra Krishnaswamy (I2R, A* Star, Singapore). Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) or oral/mouth cancer is amongst the top ten most common cancers in the world with increasing numbers and a poor prognosis. Read more

Elphinstone Scholarship - Novel drug targets for pulmonary arterial hypertension: dissecting the phosphodiesterase 1 signalsome

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PH), which is high blood pressure in the lung, is characterized by increased pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells (PASMC) in the walls of the blood vessels, raised pulmonary vascular resistance, right ventricular failure and premature death. Read more

Phenotypic characterisation of red and white blood cells from patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
The prevalence of Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) is escalating at an alarming rate, with almost 10% of the UK population suffering from T2DM or in a pre-diabetic state. Read more
