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

Control of Parathyroid Hormone Secretion

The regulation of parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion is of fundamental importance for calcium homeostasis and in mineral conditions affecting bone and the kidneys. Read more

Epigenetic regulation in heart failure and cardiac sudden death

A large proportion of heart failure patients die from cardiac sudden death (SCD), a direct result of lethal ventricular arrhythmias, which is the principal cause of mortality from heart disease worldwide and remains a major unresolved public health problem. 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

Non-invasive cardiac metabolism assessment using ultra-high field (7T) MR Spectroscopy

My group at the Oxford Centre for Clinical Magnetic Resonance Research (OCMR) is focused on development of new methods for cardiac metabolism assessment using magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS). Read more

Go with the flow: the why and how of cardiovascular disease

Have you ever wondered why and how cardiovascular disease and atherosclerotic plaques develop in the areas that they do? Why is it that some arteries are prone to blockage while others are protected? The answer lies with blood flow. Read more

Elucidating the role of disease modifying gene variants in inherited cardiomyopathies using induced pluripotent stem cell derived cardiomyocytes and CRISPR/Cas-9.

Our group is interested in uncovering and understanding key mechanisms of disease that affect cardiac muscle function. We have a particular interest in understanding how regulation of cardiac muscle contraction is altered in common acquired and inherited cardiovascular diseases. Read more
