In addition to traditional risks, such as smoking and obesity, the quality of our prenatal development plays a key role in determining whether we suffer heart disease. The quality of our environment in the womb is determined by the available nutrient and oxygen supply. We have shown that reductions in oxygen delivery to the unborn can increase its risk of developing heart disease later in life. We propose maladaptive cardiomyocyte calcium handling is the cellular basis for cardiac dysfunction and that treatment of hypoxic pregnancies with antioxidants can protect against this. Applications are invited for a Post-Doctoral Scientist to carry out the programme of work to test this hypothesis.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 3 years in the first instance.
