1 Blood Pressure Research Group Cardiovascular & Renal Research Come & Join the Fun For more information see the Honours Booklet or even better, come & have a chat

2 Mums & Offspring: Programming of Adult Cardiovascular & Renal Disease Diet, Obesity & Diabetes: Consequences for the Heart, Kidney and Cardiovascular Health Altered Development : Fetal, Placental & Kidney structure and genetics Research Themes Whole kidney & single nephron function : What does control kidney function? Roles of nerves & reactive oxygen species. Heart: Controlling contractile function in healthy and diseased hearts Hypertension: What roles do nerves, salt or gender have in the development & maintenance of hypertension

3 Animal Models: Rabbits, Rats & Mice (including knockout strains) Research Methods Conscious Recordings: Blood Pressure (including radiotelemetry), Renal Function, Nerve activity, Anaesthetized Recordings: Single nephron and whole kidney function, renal oxygenation, nerve activity, Cardiac Contractility, Cardiac Function, Cardiac Metabolism Structural & Functional Analysis: Electron Microscopy (transmission & scanning), Light Microscopy, Ultrasound, Tissue Pathology, Fibrosis. Novel Technologies -Synchrotron 18 day rabbit fetus

4 Research People Dr Niwanthi Rajapakse (F259): Nitric Oxide, renal L- arginine uptake, Hypertension Assoc Prof Roger Evans (F274): Renal Oxygenation, Obesity, Sympathetic Nerves & Hypertension Dr James Pearson (F206): Cardiac contraction, Heart Failure, Diabetes, Synchrotron Dr Kate Denton (F266): Maternal Programming, pregnancy, sex differences, Renin Angiotensin system, Hypertension Dr Michelle Kett (F206): Nephron Endowment, High Salt & protein diets, Obesity, Hypertension & Kidney Disease Dr Russell Brown (F259): Single Nephron Function, Obesity, Renin Angiotensin system, Hypertension, reactive oxygen species
