Professor Gerard Nash
09:55 – Microparticles and Trauma
Professor Nash originally trained as a physical scientist and is interested in understanding the processes of cell adhesion and migration, and the effects of blood flow on these processes, by application of well-defined, quantitative, in vitro models.
Professor Nash has published over 150 research papers in scientific journals as well as reviews and book chapters in the fields of blood flow, cell mechanics, and leukocyte adhesion and migrationLeukocyte is a general term for all white blood cells, which are part of the body's immune system. Migration refers to the movement of these cells to infected or damaged areas of the body and adhesion to their ability to stick to the inside of blood vessels near where they are required.. He has received grants from British Heart Foundation, Wellcome Trust, BBSRC, MRC, EPSRC and Cancer Research UK.
