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

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

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.

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

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

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.

Impact of RhoA deregulation on smooth muscle cell phenotypic dysfunction in Type 2 diabetes

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is an escalating healthcare burden. It inflicts significant physical and emotional distress on patients and their carers, and treatment of T2D and its complications accounts for ~10% of the entire NHS budget. Read more

Cellular protein quality control in diabetes-associated heart disease: The insight into mechanisms and therapeutic potentials

Cardiovascular complications are the leading causes of diabetes mortality. With the exception of vascular and valvular injuries, diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a distinct myocardial disease, which is characterised by abnormal cellular metabolism and defects in organelles function, leading to impaired cardiac function.
