Course Summary

The principal research interest in renal disease is peritoneal dialysis and the evaluation of fluid status in advanced renal failure. This links very closely to clinical work offering opportunities for projects translating basic science into direct relevance for patients. Research in cardiology and lipid metabolism concentrates on the mechanisms of atherosclerosis and biomarkers of cardiovascular disease and insulin resistance and includes the role of autoimmunity in atherogenesis, trace elements, and models of atherosclerosis. Clinical research includes the assessment of insulin resistance, and novel biomarkers of coronary risk.
