Diabetes and vascular health education and research: microvascular processes and associated work


The University has formed a multidisciplinary team with a teaching hospital to study the fundamental nature of the complications of diabetes, focussing on the interrelationships between insulin resistance and vascular behaviour. It has assembled extremely advanced technology for the study of human microvessels and pioneered techniques relating to an important aspect of one of the world’s most persistent and unyielding diseases.
