About us

Our group is part of the BHF Centre of Research Excellence at Oxford, and includes scientists based at the Department of Computer Science and the Bioengineering Institute, with strong links with the Departments of Cardiovascular Medicine and Physiology, and established collaborations with clinical and experimental collaborators in academia, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and regulatory agencies.

Latest News

The Oxford Symposium: "The future of therapy discovery and development" is taking place on 5th and 6th December at the Department of Computer Science, Oxford and is sponsored by NC3Rs.

Posted 23/11/2022

Sessions will include Drug development, Therapies in ischemic cardiomyopathy, Sudden cardiac death, Precision medicine, Digital twins and big date and In the clinic and beyond.

The full programme is available here.

If you would like to attend this free Symposium please email Blanca Rodriguez ASAP as spaces in the lecture theatre are limited.

Registration is free (including lunches on both days and dinner on December 5th).
