  Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are active vectors of cellular components. Elevated levels of EVs derived from platelets and vascular endothelial cells are associated with vascular dysfunction in patients with arterial stiffness, acute coronary syndromes and myocardial infarction. I am interested in EVs the setting of obesity - a major global health challenge that is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). As such, my research focuses on characterising adipocyte-derived EVs and determining their involvement in vascular endothelial cell dysfunction.
