Our group uses various animal models to study treatments, diets and genetic manipulations to look at the effect on diabetic micro- and macrovascular disease. We also provide a core service to the rest of the department via our expertise in animal models and supplying animal technician services with various specialised techniques.
Projects and Opportunities
- Role of the AT2 receptor in the development of diabetic nephropathy in the Akita mouse
Current project funding
- Dr Bryna chow is supported by a Research Fellowship from the JDRF International
