Welcome to the Vascular Mechanobiology Lab, which is headed by Professor Paul Evans at the University of Sheffield.

 

As a lab, we are interested in the effects of shear stress on the endothelial cells that line the inside of blood vessels, and particularly how this leads to the development of atherosclerosis, a disease that causes heart attack and stroke which are major causes of death and disability.

By browsing our website you can find out more information about the research we carry out, our published research, members of the lab, as well as recent lab news and events.
