The principal aim of the BHF Centre of Research Excellence is to train cardiovascular scientists of the future in ways that expose them to scientific disciplines that have not been traditionally associated with cardiovascular science. We aim to foster cross-disciplinary research and teaching of the highest quality that exploits the world-class reputation of Imperial College’s scientists and clinicians in biomedicine, engineering, mathematics and physical sciences. We aim to recruit internationally competitive individuals to our MRes/PhD training programme.
The BHF Centre Directors and participating investigators have extensive experience as leaders of innovative training platforms in relevant areas such as Molecular Cardiology, Chemical Biology, Mathematical Modeling for Haemodynamics, and Walport Clinical Academic Fellowships and Lectureships. The BHF Centre of Research Excellence further enhances Imperial College London as a globally competitive destination for cardiovascular research training.
