Excellent example on successful Translational Research at WCMM Lund between Anja Meissner and Martin Magnusson:
- Phospholipid S1P suggested as a potential biomarker in cardiovascular disease
In 2017 both Anja Meissner and Martin Magnusson were recruited to WCMM Lund, as WCMM Fellow and WCMM Clinical Researcher, respectively. Using a translation approach including a patient cohort, animal models and ex vivo and in vitro models they have validated S1P-blood pressure associations in humans. Their translational findings demonstrate a link between plasma S1P and systolic BP as well as many inflammation and cardiovascular disease markers and suggest S1P's biomarker potential. The results are published in the high ranked Journal Hypertension and was published at the World Hypertension Day in May 2021.
