Adventures in vascular biology

The significance of the endothelium for the circulatory system.


Thirty years ago it was thought that the endothelium, a layer of thin, flat cells that line the interior surface of blood vessels was inert. However, major discoveries since then have demonstrated that it is a highly metabolic organ involved in maintaining the equilibrium of the circulatory system. In fact it is so important that alterations in its behaviour can lead to vessel wall disease, causing conditions such as hypertension (elevated blood pressure), atheroscelrosis (hardening of the arteries) and thrombosis (blood clots). In this lecture Salvador Moncada will discuss the significance of these discoveries for our understanding of normal and abnormal vessel behaviour, and their implications for defining future directions for vascular research.
