The Centre for Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging was established in 2010 under the leadership of Professor Steffen Petersen.
The overall research objectives of this world-renowned academic group are to:
Our Centre was established in 2010 and initially supported through the NIHR Barts Biomedical Research Centre. This clinical-academic Centre is closely linked to the Department of Imaging at Barts Heart Centre, Barts Health NHS Trust and also collaborates closely with clinical academics from University College London. Together with Barts Heart Centre we offer highly rated cardiac imaging courses.
One main focus of the Centre is to apply epidemiological and machine learning approaches to large-scale studies that have cardiac imaging available, such as UK Biobank (Professor Petersen co-leads the cardiac MRI sub-study) and the Barts BioResource. This research is multidisciplinary in nature with over 100 collaborators from over 20 centres from around the world. Much of our recent work has been published in high-impact journals as well as receiving significant media attention both on television and in print.
The Centre has an excellent track record of training clinical and non-clinical researchers at all levels from medical students to post-doctoral researchers. Many of these researchers have been awarded prestigious prizes at national and international conferences, have been successful in acquiring independent Fellowships and competitive NHS clinical-academic training posts, and have obtained academic positions in prominent hospitals, universities and laboratories.
We are a friendly, accessible and international team of researchers and welcome any enquiries from talented individuals, at any stage of their career, who would like to work with us.
