Sunlight and skin type: exploring the vitamin D status of the black-skinned population in UK

  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
Vitamin D is necessary for calcium homeostasis, and thus a healthy musculoskeletal system. It is also implicated in contributing to defences against a range of other ailments including autoimmune diseases, respiratory tract infections and cancers. Read more

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
