Dr Beata Wojciak-Stothard leads a basic science research group studying molecular processes influencing pulmonary endothelial homeostasis. Her group utilises data from proteomic, genomic and metabolomic screening of patient samples to identify signalling mediators linked to endothelial dysfunction in pulmonary hypertension (PH). Employing novel experimental approaches including organ-on-a-chip platforms, Dr Wojciak-Stothard aims to develop new therapeutic strategies for the treatment of this disease
