Gina Galli is a lecturer at the University of Manchester, in the Institute for Cardiovascular Sciences, Faculty of Biology Medicine and Health.  She is a comparative cardiovascular physiologist that is interested in the evolution of the vertebrate heart and the cellular mechanisms that allow organisms to survive in low oxygen environments.  During her PhD at The University of Birmingham (2006) she studied adaptations in reptiles that led to the evolution of the divided heart.  Following on from her doctoral studies, Gina undertook a postdoctoral position at Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University and a postdoctoral fellowship at The University of British Columbia to investigate adaptations in excitation contraction coupling and metabolic pathways that allows ectothermic hearts to endure environmental stress.  Currently she is also examining the long-term impact of developmental hypoxia on cardiac function and the programming of disease in mammals.
