Dipak Ramji's Biography

Dipak Ramji, Professor, Cardiff University

Dr Dipak Ramji is Professor of Cardiovascular Science at the School of Biosciences in Cardiff University. He received his BSc (Hons) degree (Biochemistry) and his PhD (Molecular Biology) from the University of Leeds. This was followed by post-doctoral research at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (Heidelberg) and the Istituto di Ricerche di Biologia Molecolare P. Angeletti (Rome) with fellowships from the Royal Society and the EU. He joined Cardiff University in 1992 and completed 25 years of service in August 2017. His research is focused on understanding how the immune and inflammatory responses regulate cellular processes in heart disease with the goal of attaining deeper mechanistic insight and identifying preventative/therapeutic agents. His research has been funded by several organisations and received continuous funding from the British Heart Foundation since 1997. He has published over 150 research articles (h index 33 and i10 index 66 with over 5500 citations). He is an Editorial Board member of 16 international journals; regular organising committee member, speaker and track/session chair at international conferences on heart disease; involved in grant evaluation for over 20 organisations; and supervised over 25 PhD students. In addition to research, he is involved in teaching and administration, including Postgraduate Tutor for the Biomedicine division at the School of Biosciences and external examiner for Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Reading and King’s College London.

This talk will elaborate the Novel insights into intracellular signalling pathways. Cytokines will be discussed in the context of current therapies and future drug discovery and development. In this presentation many conventional therapies, such as statins and nutraceuticals, that modulate cytokine signalling will also be discussed. The limitation of cytokine therapeutics and the possibility of approaches involving modulation of cells that produce anti-atherogenic cytokines will also be presented.
