Course Summary

Cardiovascular disease is projected to remain the single leading cause of death over the next two decades, accountable for considerable disability and reduction in the quality of life, therefore research is vital to advance its diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Our strength is in identifying and designing novel therapeutic strategies that will lead to clinical trials.

Overview

The Institute of Cardiovascular & Medical Sciences (ICAMS) is a successful and vibrant research institute with outstanding training and learning opportunities. Our purpose-built British Heart Foundation (BHF) Cardiovascular Research Centre houses state-of-the-art laboratories and facilities and we are one of only six BHF Centres of Excellence in the UK.

Our research strengths have been integrated into substantial, well-resourced thematic programmes that build on the strengths of individual, clinical and non-clinical principal investigators. Working in basic, translational and clinical research, our strength is in elucidating mechanisms of cardiovascular disease, identifying biomarkers of disease, identifying therapeutic targets and developing and designing novel therapeutic strategies that will lead to clinical trials.

Individual research projects are tailored around the expertise of principal investigators within the institute. Basic and clinical projects are available for study. A variety of approaches are used, including molecular biology, biochemistry, epidemiology, mathematical modelling, bioinformatics, genetics, cell biology (including advanced in vitro and in vivo imaging), immunology and polyomics (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics etc).
