Physiology of circulation, kidney and lung
2200 København N.
I am interested in cardiovascular physiology, with a special focus on the function of the small arteries, which determine the peripheral hydrodynamic resistance and consequente blood pressure and blood flow distribution. I base my work on experimental research based on animal experimentation and experiments with arteries dissected from human biopsies. I am interested in cardiovascular changes in hypertension, obesity and diabetes with a particular interest in understanding how transport of ions across cell membranes is affected in these conditions.
Primary fields of research
- cell biology
- physiology and pharmacology of blood vessels
- ion transport
Physiology for medical students and molecular biomedicine students.
Supervisor for research students within vascular physiology and ion transport.
