Diabetes and Vascular Research Centre
Currently undertaking a PhD in medical science, looking at the microvascular health of type 2 diabetic patients at differing stages of kidney decline, with particular emphasis on the role of the endothelial glycocalyx.
Andrew's undergraduate research focused on oxidative stress and muscle damage, and more recently as a masters student researching symptom variation and severity in Meniere’s disease, under the supervision of Dr Jess Tyrrell.
PhD - Current
Andrew's research interests focus on the physiology of microvascular disease pathology. He is currently working on type 2 diabetes examining the relationship between blood vessel health and kidney function, this will be achieved using a number of novel imaging markers, matched with traditional markers of kidney function and disease progression, with particular emphasis on the role of the endothelial glycocalyx. This project is funded by the innovative medicines initiative and supervised by Professor Angela Shore and Dr Kim Gooding.
