UCL Division of Medicine

Centre for Cardiovascular Biology and Medicine

The core goal of the Centre for Cardiovascular Biology and Medicine (CVBM) is to understand the biological mechanisms that control the functions of blood vessels and to translate this knowledge into treatments for cardiovascular and other human diseases. A major focus of the centre’s research led by Professor Ian Zachary, is understanding how the angiogenic cytokine, VEGF, signals endothelial cells in blood vessels to mediate its vital functions in vertebrates. Professor John Martin is leading clinical studies on the use of stem cells for treating heart disease. Dr Richard Day leads the Applied Biomedical Engineering Group focusing on translational, interdisciplinary research and regenerative medicine for several debilitating conditions.
