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 EHRA EUROPACE-CARDIOSTIM Congress and the 41th Official Meeting of the European Working Group on Cardiac Cellular Electrophysiology will take place in conjunction on 18-19 June 2017 in Vienna – Austria.
Blanca Rodriguez is giving a talk on: “Computational prediction of acquired Long QT and drug-induced Torsades de Pointes.” on the session “the power of electronic health records and computational technologies”.
She is also co-chairing the session “Back to nature? The rise of biologicals to replace catheters, drugs and devices in antiarrhythmic therapy” with Paul volders (Maastricht, Netherlands).
