What is Computational Cardiovascular Science?

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, and we have previously been awarded funding also from the Leverhulme Trust, the Royal Society, the MRC and the BBSRC.

Professor Yoram Rudy will be giving the following talks during his visit to Oxford: 

 Title: Noninvasive imaging of cardiac electrophysiology and arrhythmias in the intact human heart

 Date: Monday, 26 September 2016, 12:30 – 13:30 (lunch will be provided)

 Where: Room B, West Wing, Level 6, John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington, Oxford

 Title: Multi-Scale Integration of Cardiac Excitation: From Ion-Channel Molecular Structure to the Human Heart

 Date: Wednesday, 5 October 2016, 12:00 – 13:00

 Where: Lecture Theatre, Department of Pharmacology, off Mansfield Road, Oxford OX1 3QT

 Title: Multi-scale integration of cardiac excitation: from ion-channel molecular structure to the human heart

 Date: Tuesday, 11 October 2016, 17:00 – 18:00

 Where: Sherrington Building, off Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PT

All members of the University welcome

Professor Yoram Rudy is The Fred Saigh Distinguished Professor of Engineering, Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Cell Biology & Physiology, Medicine, Radiology, and Pediatrics and Director of the Cardiac Bioelectricity and Arrhythmia Center (CBAC)

His research aims at understanding the mechanisms that underlie normal and abnormal rhythms of the heart at various levels, from the molecular (ion channel) and cellular to the whole heart. They are also developing a novel noninvasive imaging modality (Electrocardiographic Imaging, ECGI) for the diagnosis and guided therapy of cardiac arrhythmias. 

He will be visiting us until mid-October, if you want to meet, please contact!
