Welcome to the Evans lab website.
Time averaged wall shear stress map of the porcine aorta (ATVB 2017;37:130-143).
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.
