Biography & Research Interest

Welcome Dr. Ulvi Bayraktutan to Join the Editorial Board of Journal of Stroke ResearchDr Ulvi Bayraktutan received his BVMS degree, with an outstanding achievement award from University of Firat. He received his doctorate from the University of Nottingham and subsequently worked as a research fellow in the Departments of Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of Wales and King’s College London, respectively. During the tenure of these posts, Dr Bayraktutan revealed that endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene is selectively dysregulated in cardiac myocytes and coronary microvascular endothelial cells express a neutrophil type of NADPH oxidase that constitutes a major enzymatic sources of oxidative stress in the vasculature.
Dr Bayraktutan then started working as a Lecturer in the Division of Medicine at Queen’s University of Belfast where he investigated the underlying causes of aging-, hypertension- and diabetes-induced cardiac and vascular pathologies with an aim to discover efficacious novel therapeutics to replace or supplement the existing treatment regimens with statins, ACE inhibitors, diuretics, etc. Dr Bayraktutan returned to the University of Nottingham as an Associate Professor in 2005 where his current research focuses on molecular mechanisms that regulate breakdown and recovery of blood-brain barrier; endothelial progenitor cells; neurovascular dysfunction; ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke pathophysiology and clinical biomarkers for stroke.

Research interests:
Blood-brain barrier, neurovascular dysfunction, oxidative stress, endothelial progenitor cells, stroke pathophysiology, clinical biomarkers.
