Queensland Research Centre for Peripheral Vascular Disease
James Cook University
Alexandra Trollope was awarded my PhD in 2008 in Molecular Biology at the University of Portsmouth, School of Biological Sciences, UK. My first research position was with Prof. Jon Golledge, the Director of the Queensland Research Centre for Peripheral Vascular Disease (QRCPVD) as a Research Associate working on Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAA) from 2009-2010. I then worked at Bristol University (UK) as a Research Associate with Prof. Hans Reul, the Head of the Neuro-Epigenetics Research group, investigating how epigenetics effects stress-related learning and memory (2010-2013)
HEr research has always focused on epigenetics, specifically stress-related learning and memory and peripheral vascular disease (PVD). Epigenetics is at the forefront of modern science and is an extremely exciting field of research with the potential for diagnostic and therapeutic treatment of disease.
