Pasquale Maffia

Andrew Bond

I received my BSc(HONS) in Pharmacy in 1994, my MPhil in Pharmacology in 1996 and my Ph.D. in Pharmacology in 2000 all from the University of Naples Federico II (Italy), where I became Aggregate Professor of Pharmacology in 2006. I joined the University of Strathclyde in 2007 as a Lecturer in Integrative Mammalian Biology, before moving to the University of Glasgow where I am currently Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation. My long term research interest is the role of the immune-inflammatory response in vascular diseases. Current research activities address the imaging and study of cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis, neointimal formation and stroke.I have authored around 50 scientific papers and invited reviews in peer-reviewed journals including Circulation, PNAS, Blood, Pharmacology & Therapeutics and ATVB. I am currently a British Pharmacological Society Meetings Committee member and an editorial board member of Current Angiogenesis. Further information can be found here:

The BSCR plays a pivotal role for the cardiovascular community within the UK. As a member of the BSCR committee, I would do my best to contribute to the Society’s activities and wish to facilitate interactions with other national and overseas learned bodies.
