Computational Cardiovascular Science 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 biosignals and medical images.
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.
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 BHF, the European Commission, EPSRC, IMI, ARCHER and the NC3Rs. We have previously been awarded funding from the Leverhulme Trust, the Royal Society,the Royal Academy of Engineering, the MRC and the BBSRC.
The Medical Sciences Division and Department of Biomedical Services Oxford 3Rs Research Day will be held on Friday the 24th of February 10:00-17:00. It will cover advances in reduction, refinement and replacement of animals in research, and will feature both local and national speakers, including the National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research. The event is supported by "Understanding Animal Research" and the NC3Rs.
Elisa Passini will give a talk on "In Silico Drug Trials Predict Drugs Cardiotoxicity and Identify Sub-Populations at Higher Risk"
