Course summary

Programme description

Our PhD/MPhil Cardiovascular Sciences programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Cardiovascular Sciences.

Cardiovascular diseases are major causes of mortality and morbidity in developed and developing countries worldwide.

Our research spans five main themes:

cardiovascular genetics and development;
experimental cardiology;
vascular biology/hypertension;
stroke;
clinical cardiovascular research.

We adopt an integrated 'bench-to-bedside' translational approach for understanding the underlying mechanisms responsible for the functioning of the cardiovascular system in both health and disease.

To this end, there is a wide spectrum of research spanning clinical trials, small and large animal models of cardiovascular diseases, whole organs and tissues, cells and single molecule studies. Working together in purpose-built facilities provides for a stimulating and cutting-edge environment.

Examples of research programmes include:

  • cardiac and vascular electrophysiology;
  • cardiac conduction system;
  • calcium and second messenger signalling in the heart and vasculature;
  • heart failure and arrhythmias;
  • hypertrophic signalling pathways in the heart;
  • cardiovascular genetics and development;
  • cellular and protein structure;
  • comparative biology and mitochondrial function;
  • computer modelling;
  • hypertension, obesity, metabolic syndrome and diabetes research;
  • vascular biology of small and large arteries;
  • angiogenesis and endothelial biology;
  • stroke;
  • cardiovascular imaging;
  • induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (iPSC) models of cardiovascular disease;
  • cardiac and vascular regeneration.
  • renal physiology and genetics
  • renal medicine
