The principal focus of this laboratory is human cardiovascular neuroscience — the sympathetic nervous system, in the context of health and disease. The laboratory scientists are eminent in this field and work across four main research themes:

  1. The treatment of severe drug-resistant hypertension.
  2. Orthostatic intolerance syndromes with postural fainting.
  3. Obesity.
  4. The links between stress, psychological illness and heart disease.
