Circadian clock control of adipocyte metabolism

Obesity is a major public health issue affecting one third of UK adults, and an estimated 2.1 billion individuals worldwide. The role of circadian clock dysfunction in the development of obesity is becoming clear, with disruptive lifestyles (e.g. Read more

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

Adaptation to environmental change in animals: ecology, evolution and genomics.

How are animals able to live in different environments, with different temperatures, energetic demands, diet, predators, parasites or pH? Thanks to advances in gene sequencing technology, we are in a remarkable period of discovery about the genomic basis of adaptation and how this depends on the intricacies of ecology and environment.

Defining the metabolic and neuromuscular mechanisms of skeletal muscle adaptation to reduced physical activity and subsequent recovery throughout adult lifespan

  Research Group: PENRG - Physiology Exercise and Nutrition Research Group
Physical inactivity is the 4th leading cause of death in the world. People with the highest prolonged sedentary time have greater chance of developing health problems such as cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes, and a greater risk of dying younger. Read more
