The Computational Cardiovascular Science group aims at the integration of computational methods in cardiovascular research to integrate and expand the information extracted from a range of experimental and clinical data including bio-signals and medical images.
Our team 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 international and national collaborations with clinical and experimental collaborators in academia, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and regulatory agencies.
Translation from basic science to clinical and industrial applications is central to our research. We are also committed to training of postdocs and graduate students in an interdisciplinary, dynamic and flexible research environment to help them acquire the necessary skills for future jobs in academia, industry or government. Our research is currently supported by the Wellcome Trust, the British Heart Foundation (BHF), the European Commission, the National Centre for the Replacement, Refinements and Reduction of Animals in Research (NC3Rs), EPSRC and BBSRC and we have also previously been awarded funding from the Royal Academy of Engineering, the MRC, Leverhulme Trust, Microsoft Azure, Quantitative Systems Pharmacology (QSP) UK NEtwork, and the Royal Society.
