The Centre for Cardiovascular Science aims to foster and deliver research into the causes, consequences and therapy of the cardiovascular diseases.
We offer postgraduates the opportunity to work within internationally leading research programmes addressing fundamental development and control of the cardiovascular system and the origins and consequences of cardiovascular disease. The work extends from basic laboratory research through to clinical studies.
In 2008, the Centre was designated as one four British Heart Foundation Centres of Research Excellence (CoRE) and was awarded £7.6M over a six-year period.
Major research efforts are directed at:
- the metabolic syndrome and risk factors for cardiovascular disease
- mechanisms of atheromatous plaque formation and disruption
- prenatal programming of cardiovascular disease
- renal dysfunction and hypertension
- mechanisms of endothelial dysfunction
- circadian biology
- cell biology.
