Emma Hart

University of Bristol,
United Kingdom

Emma Hart studied Exercise Physiology as an Undergraduate at Liverpool John Moores University, which inspired her to complete a PhD in human Cardiovascular Physiology at Brunel University. In 2008, Emma received an American Heart Association Postdoctoral Fellowship to study sex differences in the sympathetic regulation of blood pressure at the Mayo Clinic (USA) with Dr’s Michael Joyner and Nisha Charkoudian.

In 2011, Emma was awarded an Intermediate Basic Science Research Fellowship from the British Heart Foundation, to begin setting up her own research lab at the University of Bristol. Emma’s research group focuses on cerebral mechanisms that trigger the onset of hypertension in humans and the role of sex steroid hormones in protecting against (or triggering) high blood pressure in men and women.
