The Centre for Biochemical Pharmacology is successfully investigating key aspects of innate and adaptive inflammation, as well as the mechanisms by which the inflammatory process is resolved published in Immunity, Nature Medicine, Science Translational Medicine amongst others. The Centre has attracted major investments from Research Councils, Charities and EU funding agencies, including 1 MRC and 2 ARUK intermediate and senior fellowships, 3 BHF Intermediate Fellowships, a prestigious Sir Henry Dale Fellowship, and a BHF Chair and Programme Grant.
Principal InvestigatorsProfessor Federica Marelli-Berg; Dr Dianne Cooper; Professor Mauro Perretti; Professor Nicholas Goulding; Professor Ahuva Nissim; Dr Sadani Cooray; Dr Ezra Aksoy; Dr Paula Longhi; Dr Lucy Norling; Professor Jesmond Dalli; Dr Suchita Nadkarni; Dr Dunja Aksentijevic

This Centre for Cardiovascular Medicine and Devices has been created to bridge the gap between academics and clinicians; with a strong emphasis on innovation. We encourage collaborations between our academic and scientific knowledge base to test new ideas and treatments.
This Centre houses a productive transatlantic relationship with Yale University, which focuses on research and innovation. Our projects include next-generation stent technology and big data consolidation. Our Yale colleagues include one of the Centre’s research leads, Prof. Alexandra Lansky, alongside Prof. Carlos Mena-Hurtado, Prof. John Forrest and Prof. Eric Velasquez. Similarly, the Centre has a strong working relationship with Prof. Bernard Gersh, based at the Mayo Clinic.
Principal InvestigatorsProfessor Anthony Mathur; Professor Amrita Ahluwalia; Professor Andreas Baumbach;Professor Alexandra Lansky

William Harvey Research Institute offers one of the largest Centres for Clinical Pharmacology and Precision Medicine in the UK led by Professor Patricia Munroe. Research in Clinical Pharmacology and Precision Medicine focuses on improving the understanding and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Our strategy combines basic science, ranging from vascular biology, large-scale genetic epidemiology to innovative clinical trials as a route to potential new therapies for cardiovascular disease, prevention of transplant rejection and pain management.

Led by Professor Márta Korbonits, research activity in the Centre for Endocrinology spans between clinically applied research in endocrinology to basic research in endocrine signalling pathways. The Centre remains one of the leading centres in clinical endocrine research and practice worldwide and has been responsible for many of the current protocols for investigation and management of endocrine disease.
Principal InvestigatorsProfessor Márta Korbonits; Professor Paul Chapple; Professor Peter McCormick; Professor Carol Shoulders; Professor Leo Dunkel; Dr Lou Metherell; Dr Helen Storr; Professor Maralyn Druce; Professor Li Chan; Dr Leonardo Guasti; Dr Carles Gaston-Massuet

Translational Medicine aims to improve human health and longevity by moving new preclinical discoveries e.g. of new drugs or other interventions to their evaluation in man (‘bench-to-bedside’). Translational Medicine also seeks to use new knowledge gained in clinical practice and to incorporate clinical observations into scientific hypothesis in the laboratory (‘bed-to-benchside’). The evaluation of new treatments in man will not only inform us about their efficacy but may also lead to a better understanding of the mechanism of action of a drug or lead to the development of new concepts that improve the quality of our preclinical disease models.
