Synopsis

Vascular Responses to Pathogens focuses on the growing research from leaders in the field for both the short and long-term impact of pathogens on the vasculature. It discusses various organisms, including bacteria, parasites, and viruses, and their role in key events leading to vascular disease. Formatted to discuss the topic of the interaction of pathogens with the vascular rather than individual diseases described separately, this reference demonstrates that common mechanisms are at play in many different diseases because they have a similar context, their vasculature. This all-inclusive reference book is a must-have tool for researchers and practicing clinicians in the areas of vascular biology, microvasculature, cardiology, and infectious disease.

Dr Gavins' research interest focuses on inflammation and the regulation of leukocyte trafficking in the microcirculation. In particular, Dr Gavins and her team use the specialized technique of intravital microscopy to study cellular interactions in the microvasculature (brain, mesentery, cremaster, lymph node) of animals with inflammation. This technique enables a qualitative and quantitative measurement of a variety of different events e.g. measurements of platelet-leukocyte-endothelial cell adhesion, endothelial surface expression of adhesion molecules in vascular beds, in vivo measurements of oxidant stress, and endothelial barrier function. Dr Gavins also runs the MRes in Experimental Physiology and Drug Discovery (Bio-Imaging) programme and chairs a monthly seminar/ workshop for the Centre of Integrative Mammalian Physiology and Pharmacology. Dr. Stokes major area of research is the inflammatory impact of cytomegalovirus on the microvasculature. Her diverse research team is comprised of post-doctoral scientists and students, with an international reputation. Their research crosses the boundaries between Integrative Physiology and Pharmacology and uses multidisciplinary approaches to advance understanding of the vascular physiology and pathophysiology of inflammatory and related disorders, at the molecular, cellular, tissue and whole organism levels. In particular she and her team focus on the microcirculation, studying leukocyte trafficking and endothelial dysfunction in both the brain and the periphery.
