Infection, Immunity & Cardiovascular Disease – Dr Tim Chico

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.
