Pharmacology 2019 | Detecting endothelial cell dysfunction towards the identification of novel therapeutic targets

Start date: December 15, 2019 - End date: December 17, 2019

Location: Edinburgh International Conference Centre, Scotland, UK

BSCR events

As in previous years, the BSCR is delighted to have been selected to organise a themed session at Pharmacology 2019.

Endothelial dysfunction is an early predictor of vascular disease and associated risk factors and co-morbidities, including hypertension, diabetes, dementia and aging. It is hallmarked by an imbalance in the release of mediators, due to a number of mechanisms including oxidative stress and elevated levels of reactive oxygen species. There is a drive for the early detection of endothelial dysfunction to enable targeted delivery of novel therapies that will prevent or slow disease progression. This symposium will discuss efforts to identify novel targets and emerging pharmacological intervention strategies, towards treatment and the restoration of vascular health and function

Session Details:  
Sunday 15th December (11.45 – 13.30)

Dr May Azzawi, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK
