Diabetes & Vascular Biology

Understanding and exploiting mechanisms of metabolic and vascular function, pathogenic mechanisms in diabetes and inflammatory disease, as well as new therapeutic approaches that modulate metabolism, inflammation and signalling in vascular disease.

Research Focus

• Influence of nutrition and metabolic phenotypes on vascular function
• Pathogenic mechanisms in diabetes and inflammatory disease
• Vascular remodelling in atherosclerosis, inflammation and hypoxia
• New therapeutic approaches based on the modulation of metabolism, inflammation and signalling in vascular disease.
• Molecular mechanisms underlying diabetic nephropathy including new therapeutic molecules.
