Summary

Professor of Cardiology and Head of Cardiac Electrophysiology, Imperial College London, and Consultant Cardiologist at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (Hammersmith & St Mary's Hospitals).  His other appointments include Adjunct Professor, Department of Pharmacology, Columbia University, New York.  At Imperial, he is Director of the ElectroCardioMaths Programme, Clinical Lead of Imperial Centre for Cardiac Engineering, founder of the Connected Care Bureau.  He is the non-US member of the Board of Trustees and founding member of the Digital Health and Research Committees of Heart Rhythm Society, USA, on the Board of the MedCity/AHSN DigitalHealth.London, and Clinical Lead for Android Wear Health @Google - London.

Professor Peters established the Connected Care Bureau as a joint venture of Imperial College & NHS Trust in London - as the only way to drive rapid clinical implementation of tech-enabled better and more cost effective care. Clinical Champions in partnership with their patients evolving innovative models of care. It is not about the technologies but about their role as tools for self-care as the route to better outcomes in prevention and treatment of disease and more efficient and accessible healthcare systems. Hence, Connected Care Bureau for implementing needs-led innovative models for remote diagnosis, triage and supported self-care of Long Term Conditions with the sole aim of delivering better care more cost effectively.  As such, he leads a collaborative network that provides the ideal mix of permissive clinical environment, authority, expertise, track-record and governance structure for any health provider, commercial or investor operation to understand and establish itself in the field locally, nationally and globally. 

A Cardiologist specializing in implanted and on-body biosensor technologies in improving healthcare and outcomes. Founded ElectroCardioMaths Programme - the centerpiece for Imperial Center of Excellence in Cardiac Engineering. 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 200 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.  Co-founder of the European Cardiac Arrhythmia Society, Symphony Medical Inc and CardioPolymers Inc, and eHealthCompass and DASH Medical Ltd.
