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

Transcriptional control of vascular development

Sprouting of new capillaries from pre-existing vessels (angiogenesis) promotes the formation of almost all blood vessels during development, growth and tissue regeneration. 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

Regulation of mineralisation in atherosclerotic lesions

  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
Research Group. Biomedical Research Group. Proposed supervisory team. Dr Joseph Bird. Dr Grisha Pirianov. Theme. Cardiovascular. Summary of the research project. Read more

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

Modelling blood motion in deformable vessels

This project aims to introduce a novel approach in studying blood flow in deformable vessels by simultaneously considering both the fluid (blood) and the structure (vessel) through analytical and numerical approaches. Read more

Impact of Ischaemic Pre-Conditioning on Oxygen Uptake Kinetics: Implications for training and recovery

  Research Group: Cambridge Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences
Research Group. Cambridge Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences. Proposed supervisory team. Dr Dan Gordon. Dr Marie Gernigon (External - University of Paris-Saclay). Read more

The role of Myh10 (Non-Muscle Myosin IIB) in epicardial-myocardial cross talk during coronary vessel development.

During cardiac development the coronary vessels form from the epicardium, which is the outer epithelial cell layer of the heart. Formation of the coronary vasculature is a critical event in cardiac development, since the vasculature is required to nourish the cardiac muscle and maintain cardiac function throughout life. 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
