The Burgoyne Lab aims to better define the biochemical and molecular processes that contribute to cardiovascular health and disease. This is by using an integrative approach in studying signalling from the level of the cell to the whole biological system.
The major focus of our research is in identifying and characterising novel redox sensors and the underlying mechanisms that govern autophagy, as well as epigenetic processes that regulate myocardial structure and function.
By identifying novel signalling processes, we endeavour to improve our understanding of how the cardiovascular system is regulated, as well as identifying potential new targets for therapy.
