Lecturer in Pharmacology
Department of Biological and Biomedical Sciences

Yvonne Dempsie graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Pharmacology from the University of Glasgow in 1998 and subsequently undertook a PhD at the University of Nottingham.

Scottish Pulmonary Vascular Unit

The Scottish Pulmonary Vascular Unit (SPVU) was founded in 1990 at the Western Infirmary, Glasgow.  The unit principally investigates and treats patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension.

Dr David Welsh is Head of Basic Science Research Group at the SPVU and is based at Glasgow Caledonian University.  David's main interests involve looking into translational approaches to help understand the underlying causes of pulmonary hypertension.  The work involves both molecular signalling on a cellular level to pre-clinical development of novel PH therapies.  The research undertaken in the laboratory has contributed to the development of a novel potential PH drug which is being tested in clinical trials at present.
