Professor of Cardiology and Head of Cardiac Electrophysiology, Imperial College London, and Consultant Cardiologist at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (St Mary's Hospital).  His other appointments include Adjunct Professor, Department of Pharmacology, Columbia University, New York and Co-Director EP Research, St Joseph's Cardiovascular Research Institute in Atlanta.   He is on the Board of Trustees, The Founding Research Committee, and Board Liaison for Research of Heart Rhythm Society, USA. Professor Peters is also director of the ElectroCardioMaths Programme.

He is a Clinical Academic, performing ablation and device-implant procedures in the management of arrhythmias, forming the basis of the clinical component of the program of research into myocardial conduction ranging from sub-cellular morphological determinants of cell-cell coupling, to conduction properties of human myocardium in health and disease, and funded principally by the British Heart Foundation.   He has more than 100 peer-reviewed papers and holds patents in the field.   He has a number of international research collaborations, is on the Scientific and Medical Advisory Boards and is Consultant to a number of academic, publishing and commercial entities in Europe and the USA and is co-founder of the European Cardiac Arrhythmia Society and Symphony Medical, Inc.
