Research title: The impact of circadian photo-entrainment on kidney damage associated with ischemia reperfusion injury
Circadian Rhythms have been recently identified to have an influence on the prognosis of surgery, suggesting that time of day can reduce the occurrence and severity of adverse reactions to surgery. I am researching circadian effect on ischaemia-reperfusion-injury (IRI) within the kidney, taking particular interest into pericytes which influence the recruitment and infiltration of the immune system into tissues.
