Course content

One of the central principles is to adopt a multidisciplinary integrative approach using both in vitro and in vivo models and methods, with a strong focus on translational research and the clinical/basic science interface. The division integrates the main research-active cardiovascular groups within the School of Medicine. In addition, we have strong collaborations and interactions with colleagues in other groupings such as the Randall Division (structural biology, imaging, biophysics) and the Division of Imaging Sciences.

We have recently been designated as a British Heart Foundation Centre of Research Excellence, one of only four in the UK.
