Cardiovascular

Description
The HAPS Cardiovascular group has historically been very successful with large grants awarded from MRC and NIHR around atrial fibrillation diagnosis and treatment, antithrombotic treatment and service delivery, and latterly heart failure diagnosis and management. Current activity has developed from these areas into overlapping themes of stroke prevention and management, behavioural change, and rehabilitation. The current cardiovascular research programme can be categorised into the following themes: 1. Improving the standards of care associated with anticoagulation therapy. This includes original work around service delivery, including patient self-management, and will shortly involve investigating the impact of novel therapeutic agents across the whole health economy. 2. Heart Failure. There is an on-going programme of work around improving diagnosis and management of heart failure, with new work including the interaction of chronic kidney disease with heart failure.3. Epidemiology. This is a cross-cutting theme with special focus on the epidemiology of ischaemic heart disease, including the evaluation of population based risk scores. This work forms two themes from the Birmingham and Black Country CLAHRC and has extensive collaborations in both China and Iran. 4. Improving the prevention and treatment of thrombo-embolic disease. This programme of work is underpinned by an NIHR programme grant and includes strands investigating why prevention is often overlooked, as well as a randomised trial of extended therapy for idiopathic venous thromboembolism.

Cardiovascular and respiratory physiology research

Description
The capacity for physical activity depends critically on optimal functioning of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems.The group studies how the integration of multiple inputs that sense metabolic and mechanical perturbations e.g. blood gases, muscle metabolic milieu and contraction status, results in appropriate autonomic neural output for regulation of blood flow, blood pressure and respiration in health and disease.

Cardiovascular Sciences

Description
Cardiovascular Sciences in Birmingham brings together researchers in the School of Clinical and Experimental Medicine with groups in the School of Health and Population Sciences, and in the College of Life Sciences, linked strategically through the Centre for Cardiovascular Sciences. Cellular, molecular and physiological investigations inform translational research on atrial fibrillation, heart failure, thrombosis, inflammatory vascular disease and responses to ischaemia and hypoxia.

Cardiovascular Translational Research Group: Myocardial Infarction and Heart Failure

Description
Information on the Cardiovascular Translational Group: Myocardial Ischaemia Reperfusion Injury and Heart Failure Group, led by Dr Melanie Madhani, Cardiovascular Sciences, School of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, The University of Birmingham

Cardiovascular, respiratory and neurological sciences research

Description
Cardiovascular research in the University of Birmingham encompasses studies from the molecular and signalling pathways regulating behaviour of cells of the vasculature, to the functioning of the heart and vessels in animals, to the pathophysiology of heart failure, heart attacks and atrial fibrillation, to the impact of cardiovascular diseases on public health. We are developing ways to inhibit vascular thrombosis and inflammation, optimise blood flow, improve management of those with heart disease, and test the effects of large scale interventions on the region's health.

Carotid Body and Chemoreceptor Research Group

Description
Information on the Carotid Body and Chemoreceptor Research Group, led by Professor Prem Kumar, Section of Cardiovascular Sciences, School of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, College of Medical and Dental Sciences, The University of Birmingham

Catalysis and Reaction Engineering - Formulation Engineering Research - School of Chemical Engineering

Description
Catalysis and chemical reaction engineering lie at the core of many chemical and biochemical processes. Research activities cover the fundamental catalyst design, through formulation and catalyst manufacture, to operational issues and reactor design.
