Professor Geraldine Clough is an Emeritus Professor in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton where her research has focused on the determinants of microvascular dysfunction. Through collaboration with basic biomedical scientists, clinicians, engineers and with industry, she has played a leading role in the development and evaluation of techniques for the assessment of tissue perfusion and nutrient delivery across the life-course. Most recently Professor Clough’s group has undertaken functional and therapeutic studies to investigate and model impaired microvascular function and its association with cardiovascular risk in healthy humans and in patient cohorts with metabolic syndrome and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
