Research in the Tammaro laboratory focuses on the ion transport mechanisms (especially ion channels) that control blood vessel function. The group aim to understand how alterations in these mechanisms may lead to human disease and also endeavour to identify small molecules that could interact with vascular ion channels with the goal of modulating blood vessel function for therapeutic benefit.
