Initially, I have been trained as a medical doctor and have expertise in internal medicine as well as in clinical cardiology and to some extent - clinical immunology. After completing my PhD, I've been involved in experimental research in the Research Centre «Cardiology» (Minsk, Belarus) and University College London (UK) in close collaboration with the Department of Cardiology of Karolinska University (Stockholm, Sweden). I have experience in recovery and non-recovery in vivo rat models (myocardial infarction, brain stroke, LV hypertrophy).

Research Summary

My main research interest has been concentrated on the determining the role of nervous mechanisms in the development of myocardial ischaemia/reperfusion injury and endogenous cardioprotective phenomena. My colleagues and I identified a novel neural pathway of cardioprotection during myocardial ischaemia/reperfusion and demonstrated the phenomenon of delayed remote postconditioning cardioprotection in a rat model (Basalay M, et al. Exp Physiol 2012;97:908-917). We demonstrated the importance of GLP-1 as a humoral factor of remote ischaemic conditioning cardioprotection (Basalay M, et al Cardiovascular Research 2016;112(3):669-676) which is mediated by vagal innervation of the visceral organs (Basalay M, et al PLoS One 2016;11(2):e0150108). Recently I started working on the project dealing with the mechanisms of brain ischaemia/reperfusion injury and cerebroprotection.
