Our research interests within Biology include the following areas:

  • Cell-cell adhesion signalling
  • Effects of metabolic pathways on vascular cells
  • Molecular mechanisms underlying haemostasis and thrombosis
  • Gene regulation in endothelial cells and macrophages
  • Molecular and cell biology of angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis
  • Role of the immune system in vascular homeostasis and disease
  • Leukocyte interactions with the vessel wall
  • Biology of atherosclerosis and plaque rupture
  • Use of zebrafish to study blood vessels in inflammation and cancer
  • Preclinical imaging, including intra-vital microscopy
  • Development of vascular targeting of macromolecular therapeutics
  • Vascular tissue regeneration.
