Effect of vitamin D in vascular and endocrine cells

Vitamin D3 deficiency is a common public health problem worldwide that is increasingly believed to contribute not only to decreased bone mineralisation but potentially to other serious medical conditions. Read more

Evolution of vertebrate blood vessels

The blood vessels are the core elements of the circulatory system of animals, and their malfunction is related to most human diseases including cancer and heart attacks. Read more

How does the vascular matrix environment influence platelet activation?

The platelet is a blood cell that plays a key role in the prevention of bleeding. For platelets to form a clot or thrombus effectively, they must rearrange their actin cytoskeleton to withstand high shear stress from blood flow in the arteries. 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

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.

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

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
