Professor John McCarron

W.C Bowman Chair of Pharmacology, University of Strathclyde

John is the W.C. Bowman Chair of Pharmacology at Strathclyde University and has an interest in blood vessel function. The overall goal of his research is to understand the control of vascular smooth muscle and endothelial cell function using optical and electrophysiological techniques so that signalling systems can be visualised and understood. The work is leading to a better understanding of the vascular problems that occur in hypertension, diabetes and obesity.
