We are proud to work closely with the Barts Heart Centre (BHC) at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, one of the largest secondary and tertiary cardiovascular centres in Europe.
Through Genomics to Mechanisms research, our vision is to deliver state-of-the-art treatments to 6 million Barts Health NHS Trust patients.
Cardiovascular research programmes at the WHRI and the Barts Heart Centre are closely aligned to maximise our collective expertise and strengths in areas such as pharmacological and device development that lead to innovative clinical trials for the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease whilst offering a range of professional training opportunities. Combined, our strategic approach enables the development and delivery of world-leading clinical care.
