Hull York Medical School, University of Hull

The Centre for Cardiovascular and Metabolic Research (CCMR) brings together the expertise of the classic medical disciplines in an integrated and translational research programme and is led by Professor Alyn H Morice.


The aim of the Centre is to exploit our unique combination of research expertise in basic and clinical sciences to produce a cohesive multidisciplinary, translational approach to medical research. Our research focuses on identifying novel biochemical, molecular and cellular mechanisms that contribute to the development of cardio–metabolic diseases and translating these in findings in clinical benefits.


Our basic and clinical scientists have a wide variety or research interests that are grouped into three major areas, cardiovascular biology and medicine, diabetes and metabolic health, and haemostasis, thrombosis and inflammation.


The bench to bedside nature of the research is illustrated by the breadth of studies from the molecular pharmacology of novel human cough receptors, to our excellent track record in clinical trials and our leading role in telehealth in chronic disease.


The Daisy Building provides the central hub for translation of research and clinical practice at Castle Hill Hospital in the disciplines of Cardiology and Respiratory Medicine.  In the Allam Research Laboratories facilities are located for basic molecular and cellular work linking with our Hull Royal Infirmary laboratories in obesity and vascular disease.
