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

Ph.D. position in Plant Vascular and Root system Development

A fully funded Ph.D. position will be available (starting 06/2022 or after) in the lab of Prof. Christian Hardtke at the Department of Plant Molecular Biology, University of Lausanne, Switzerland. . Read more

Characterisation of novel inhibitors of vascular injury due to inflammation

Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a haemoprotein that is highly expressed in neutrophils and is secreted during injury and inflammation to assist in host defence reactions by producing antimicrobial reactive oxygen species. 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

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. 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.
