Tim Chico is a Reader in Cardiovascular Medicine and an Honorary Consultant Cardiologist.
His research focuses on the influence of blood flow on vascular development and remodelling. He has identified a number of pathways that integrate sensation of blood flow and vascular development, predominantly using the zebrafish as a model.
Tim’s teaching covers clinical cardiology, developmental biology, cardiovascular physiology and pathology and the use of non-mammalian models of cardiovascular disease.
Tim is also a mentor on the University’s Elite Sports Performance Scheme and has represented Team GB in the European Triathlon Union Age Group Championships.
