Computational Cardiovascular Science aims at the combination 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 9th TRM Forum on “Computer Simulation of Cardiac Function” is taking place in Lugano, December 4-5, 2017. It is organised by the “Università della Svizzera Italiana” and the Center for Computational Medicine in Cardiology CCMC.
The Forum covers topics on “The atria and cardiac conduction” and “The ventricles and whole heart” where key experts on the field discuss the latest research on Cardiac modelling. More information can be found here.
Blanca Rodriguez is an invited speaker at the session “Translating Atrial Models into Clinical Practice: Mapping, ECG and Pharmacology” with a talk entitled “In silico trials for pharmacology”. She is also co-chairing the session “In Silico Trials and Clinical Trials”.
