Research Themes
Research Summary

In my lab we study the role of the autonomic nervous system in the pathogenesis of hypertension and heart failure. We employ a wide array of cutting-edge techniques, including optogenetics and pharmacogenetics for selective activation or inhibition of glial and neuronal networks that control cardio-respiratory activity. This involves active collaboration with Prof Alexander Gourine (UCL),  Profs Sergey Kasparov and Prof Julian Paton (University of Bristol), Prof Andyrew Tinker (William Harvey Heart Centre) and Prof Michael Spyer (UCL)
