Angharad is a Consultant in Clinical Geneticis at Great Ormond Street Hospital with a special interest in cardiovascular conditions; and an NHLI Research Fellow in the Cardiovascular Genetics and Genomics Group.  She is interested in the diagnosis of complex cases, delineating and understanding the variability in clinical expression of recognised syndromes (expanding the phenotype) and identifying new syndromes and diagnoses to inform both clinical practice and research.

We are have launched a community web portal - the Heart Hive - to support patient participation in research into heart muscle disease, allowing participants to self-enrol in our research, and to see what other research opportunities are available.
