Cardiovascular biology and medicine

Cardiovascular diseases remain a major cause of mortality worldwide and represent several disorders that result in failure of the heart. This area of research includes a number of major clinical problems from heart failure to peripheral arterial disease.

Cardiovascular diseases remain a major cause of mortality worldwide and represent several disorders that result in failure of the heart. This area of research includes a number of major clinical problems from heart failure to peripheral arterial disease. We have a number of internationally competitive research programmes that stretches from the study of basic mechanisms of cardiovascular function through to clinical practice. In Hull we focus on several areas including

  • Acute coronary syndromes
  • Clinical Heart Failure
  • Metabolic Remodelling in Heart Failure
  • Peripheral arterial disease
  • Renin-angiotensin system and natriuretic peptide system in cardiovascular pathophysiology

These research themes are described in further detail on the individual investigators web pages.
