Investigating the role of the regulatory renin-angiotensin system in protecting against synaptic dysfunction in Alzheimer’s disease

Rationale. Mid-life hypertension is a modifiable risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and blood pressure lowering drugs, especially those that target the brain renin-angiotensin system (RAS), lowers the incidence of AD, and reduces the conversion of MCI and slows the progression of AD.

Assessing neuroinflammation and vascular dementia in association with atherosclerosis and aneurysm risk

Rationale. There is now substantial data demonstrating an association between high morbidity and mortality cardiovascular diseases (such as atherosclerosis and aortic aneurysms) with the onset of neurodegenerative diseases, particularly vascular dementia. Read more

Discovery and validation of clinically useful biomarkers for osteoarthritis

Project Description. Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common chronic diseases affecting the adult population. Currently, definitive diagnosis of OA is usually made using plain x-rays at relatively advanced stages of the disease when there is irreparable damage to the joint(s). Read more

Evaluation of novel therapies for human coronary artery bypass graft disease

Brief Rationale. Vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation leads to intimal thickening, which causes reoccurrence of symptoms (restenosis) in 30-50% of coronary artery disease patients receiving saphenous vein grafts [1-2]. Read more

Exploring the contribution of divergent neuroinflammation in Alzheimer’s disease

Rationale. There is accruing evidence demonstrating an association between neuroinflammation with the onset and progression of neurodegenerative diseases, particularly Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Read more

Exploring the similarities between neointimal formation after vascular injury and tumour growth

Rationale. Vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation leads to intimal thickening, which causes reoccurrence of symptoms (restenosis) in 30-50% of coronary artery disease patients receiving saphenous vein grafts and individual receiving stent implantation. Read more
