Investigating the causal role of elevated phenylalanine in cardiovascular diseases


I am a DPhil student in Prof Keith Channon’s and Dr Gillian Douglas’s laboratory in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine.  

I have research experience studying the effect of elevated Phenylalanine in the context of systemic ageing. 

My project will be positioned at the interface between metabolism, redox signaling and cardiovascular physiology.

I will investigate the causal role of elevated phenylalanine in the cardiac and vascular systems using in vitro and in vivo model systems.  

My work is funded by the British Heart Foundation Centre of Research Excellence (BHF-CRE).
