Pedro Ferreira is currently a research associate at PCIF. PCIF supports biomedical investigation for a wide variety of multidisciplinary studies by offering multimodal imaging facilities including: an MR scanner; a PET-CT scanner; and an X-ray angiography system. Pedro's work involves the development and implementation of MR imaging sequences and establishing experimental design and data processing techniques for the proposed MR projects. He is also responsible for the day-to-day scanning/maintenance of the MR system.

In 2010, Pedro was awarded a PhD in the topic of MR myocardial perfusion imaging under the supervision of Prof. David Firmim and Dr. Peter Gatehouse. The work was funded by the British Heart Foundation and based at the Royal Brompton Hospital, Imperial College London.
