Dr. Jardine graduated in Physiology & Medicine from the University of Glasgow in 1984. He undertook postgraduate research training as a Clinical Training Fellow in the MRC Blood Pressure Unit, where he pursued studies on the physiology, pharmacology and therapeutic potential of natriuretic peptides. He trained initially in Endocrinology and switched to Nephrology in 1990. After clinical training in Nephrology in Glasgow, he was a Lecturer/ Senior Registrar in Aberdeen & Inverness, and worked on proximal tubular cells and the actions of nitric oxide. He returned to Glasgow in 1994 and, as a Lecturer, Reader and Professor has pursued a variety of research themes that centre on accelerated vascular disease and long-term adverse outcomes in patients with renal disease and transplantation, their pathophysiological and genetic determinants, and their management. His current research combines laboratory work, clinical research and clinical trials, and he is the leader of the Renal Research Group in the BHF Glasgow Cardiovascular Research Centre.
His research interests are in the cardiovascular complications of renal disease and transplantation, ranging from laboratory based studies on cardiac and vascular function to international multicentre trials.
