Dr. Adam Fellows

Adam Fellows

Adam is a BHF-funded postdoctoral research associate who is primarily interested in the impact of the extracellular matrix on vascular smooth muscle cell function, especially in connection to cardiovascular diseases such as thoracic aortic aneurysms and atherosclerosis. He is also working on novel methods for the three-dimensional culture of VSMCs.
