Centre for Cardiovascular and Metabolic Neuroscience

The UCL Centre for Cardiovascular and Metabolic Neuroscience brings together research groups conducting basic and clinical studies directed at understanding the role of neural mechanisms in the development of cardiovascular and metabolic disease.

Hypertension, heart failure, obesity, diabetes and critical illness all have a significant neural component in their pathogenesis which involves autonomic dysfunction. In order to further understand these diseases, we employ cutting edge techniques, including optogenetics, pharmacogenetics, patch clamp electrophysiology, in vivo 2-Photon microscopy and electrophysiology, combined with imaging techniques including fMRI and high resolution echocardiography.
