About the Project
If you choose to study in the Boateng lab you will experience an exciting and dynamic atmosphere with many opportunities to present your work at national and international conferences. The work in my lab has been extensively featured by the British Heart Foundation (the biggest supporter of cardiovascular research in the UK), the University of Reading and the BBC news. Please see the websites below for more details on our lab work.
Please contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to working with you.
