Primary professional setting:


Prof Woolard is Professor of Cardiovascular Physiology and Pharmacology and Deputy Director of the COMPARE unit at the University of Nottingham. Her work has focussed on elucidating the molecular pharmacology of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF-A) isoforms and VEGFR2 receptors, where she has been involved in developing novel NanoBRET approaches to monitor ligand/receptor interactions. Dr Woolard is lead of the Nottingham Haemodynamic Laboratories, where her expertise in cardiovascular physiology and pharmacology has facilitated an interrogation of the mechanisms underlying the hypertensive actions of receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors, particularly those that inhibit VEGF. Her work has been supported by an MRC Programme grant, project grants from BBSRC, BHF and MRC, and collaborative grants with Heptares, Promega and AstraZeneca. Recently, she was awarded a Wellcome Trust 4-Year PhD programme grant for which she is now director.
