An exciting opportunity has arisen at the Institute of Dentistry and the Cardiovascular and Diabetes Centre in the School of Medicine, Medical Sciences and Nutrition at the University of Aberdeen.
This Clinical Research Fellowship is supported by a British Heart Foundation Project Grant awarded to Dr Karolin Hijazi, Reader in Oral Medicine, and Professor Dana Dawson, Chair in Cardiovascular medicine in collaboration with Professor Marco Oggioni, Chair in Microbial Genetics at the University of Leicester. The project investigates the hypothesis that epigenetic phase variations regulate pathogenic phenotypes of oral bacteria driving bloodstream invasion, low-grade systemic inflammation and atherogenesis/plaque instability as potential contributor to acute myocardial infarction. The study will disclose a novel target for periodontitis interventions to curb its contribution as a risk factor for coronary artery disease.
