Research

His research takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the understanding of the pathophysiology and pharmacogenetics of cardiovascular diseases and to the development of treatment strategies in patients with cardiovascular diseases. He leads an integrated cardiovascular research laboratory dedicated and equipped to the study of cardiac and vasomotor regulation. These techniques are applied towards translational research and in the development of biomarkers and novel treatment strategies in patients with cardiovascular diseases. Prof Lang is the Work Package Lead for the validation cohort for the FP-7 funded BIOSTAT-CHF study that aims optimize the treatment of heart failure for each individual using information from genomics and proteomics. A wide range of funding bodies including the British Heart Foundation, MRC, Chief Scientist Office, Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland, Tenovus and the European commission Seventh Framework Programme (FP-7) funds his research.
