The William Harvey Research Institute (WHRI) is one of Europe's largest pharmacological institutes, conducting world-leading research in the fields of cardiovascular, endocrine and inflammation science. Our major strength is in bringing scientists with different skills together, combining disciplines such as genetics, cell biology, pharmacology, epidemiology, advanced imaging and clinical trials with therapeutic innovation. 

We benefit from strong clinical links to cardiology, renal medicine, critical care, anaesthesia, rheumatology and clinical endocrinology in our allied Barts and The London NHS Trust. Embedded within the WHRI is the Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine, which offers a modular programme in sports and exercise medicine for both doctors and physiotherapists, as well as a research programme including work on the legacy of the 2012 Olympics.
