University of Nottingham
Integrative Cardiovascular and Metabolic Physiology and Pharmacology
The course uses integrated systems approaches to answer questions of clinical relevance relating to: Endothelium: mechanistic studies of endothelial function in health and disease; placenta: placental function in normal and complicated pregnancies; neurohumoral effectors: cardiovascular biology of angiotensins; vasopressin; novel peptides; purines; melatonin; and cannabinoids; in relation to vascular control, receptor mechanisms and post-receptor coupling; endotoxaemia: quantitative assessment of vasodilator and vasoconstrictor mechanisms in endotoxemia; skeletal muscle atrophy and growth: investigations of molecular events in skeletal muscle relating to atrophy, growth and contraction; human energy and macronutrient metabolism: studies of carbohydrate utilisation at rest and during exercise; nutrient-gene interactions: the integrated effects of dietary fat and carbohydrate and dietary components on the production, processing and actions of specific transcription factors that regulate gene expression.
