Dr. May Azzawi is a Reader in Vascular Physiology at the Healthcare Science Research Institute (Faculty of Science and Engineering), Manchester Metropolitan University, United Kingdom. She received her PhD from the University of London (National Heart and Lung Institute, Royal Brompton Hospital, London) and has held postdoctoral and fellowship positions at the University of Manchester. She has over 20 years’ research experience in multidisciplinary fields, including Vascular Physiology and Nanomedicine, and has published widely (> 3,000 citations to date). Dr. Azzawi leads a ‘Nanovascular’ research group investigating the influence of nanoparticles on cellular and vascular function using ex vivo and 3D in vitro models. Her group focus on strategies (Nutraceutical and Nanotechnology) for the preservation and restoration of vascular function. She has authored over 50 publications, including peer reviewed articles and book chapters, and has secured over half a £million in research funding (Innovate UK, Erasmus Mundus, EPSRC). She is co- editor of the journal ‘Regenerative Nanomedicine’; editorial board member of ‘Applied Nanostructured Materials’; she co-chaired the 3rd International conference on Nanotechnology in Medicine; and acts as referee for a number of international journals in the fields of Nanomedicine and Vascular Science.
