Centre for Microvascular Research
Welcome to the Centre for Microvascular Research (CMR) at the William Harvey Research Institute, Queen Mary University of London. Established in 2007 under the visionary leadership of Professor Sussan Nourshargh, CMR is at the forefront of internationally recognized research.
Our focus lies in unravelling the intricacies of microvascular events, with a particular emphasis on leukocyte trafficking, vascular morphology, integrity, and function. Additionally, we delve into vascular generation phenomena, including angiogenesis, myocardial repair, and stem cell therapy, exploring both physiological and pathological conditions.
Employing a multidisciplinary approach, CMR utilizes cutting-edge molecular and cellular biology techniques alongside in vivo inflammatory models. Our expertise extends to specialized imaging methods such as confocal intravital microscopy, live imaging, and multiphoton acquisition.
Over the years, CMR has demonstrated excellence in training post-doctoral researchers and PhD students. Many of our alumni have earned prestigious prizes at national and international conferences, secured independent Fellowships, and obtained academic positions in leading laboratories.
Situated on the 4th floor of the John Vane Science Centre building, our location is convenient, with the Barbican and Farringdon London Underground stations nearby. As an international team of researchers, we warmly welcome inquiries from talented individuals interested in joining our dynamic and collaborative scientific community.
