Biography

Research Interests: Autoregulation of blood flow is the ability of tissues to control 'local' blood flow in response to changes in systemic blood pressure and the tissue's metabolic requirements. Our research focusses on the mechanisms of blood flow autoregulation; pressure-induced changes in the diameter of arterioles (myogenic mechanisms) and alteration of arteriolar diameter in response to metabolic products (metabolic mechanisms).

Research Interests: Autoregulation of blood flow is the ability of tissues to control 'local' blood flow in response to changes in systemic blood pressure and the tissue's metabolic requirements. Our research focusses on the mechanisms of blood flow autoregulation; pressure-induced changes in the diameter of arterioles (myogenic mechanisms) and alteration of arteriolar diameter in response to metabolic products (metabolic mechanisms). We are also interested in the effect of metabolic diseases such as obesity and diabetes on small artery function.
