Associate Professor Vladyslav Vyazovskiy has co-authored a paper based on a pioneering sleep study led by Oxford Brookes researchers. Their research into a nocturnal primate performed in the wild is the first of its kind and could enhance our understanding of human sleep.
New study led by Neil Herring uncovers potential new approach to reducing damage after a heart attack
12 July 2019
During the emergency procedure used to reopen the blocked artery causing a heart attack, smaller "micro" blood vessels can remain constricted causing significant damage. A new study led by Associate Professor Neil Herring and published in the European Heart Journal has established a key cause behind this constriction and identified a potential therapeutic target to block the mechanism behind it.
Sarah De Val set to expand critical research into endothelial cell dysfunction in cardiovascular disease
