Welcome to the Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences

theme leader

 

Welcome to the Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences!

We are a Research Institute that focusses on cardiac, vascular and metabolic diseases and are proud to host world-leading basic and clinical scientists in these areas. We conduct translational research from discovery to clinical trials, to understand underpinning disease mechanisms, in order to improve the health of our patients and the wider population. Interdisciplinary research is one of the hallmarks of ICAMS, and our research therefore includes renal diseases, stroke, hypertension and cross-cutting themes such as cardio-oncology. Our Institute coordinates some of the most successful postgraduate teaching and research programmes within the College and is the home of MSc, MD and PhD students in basic, translational and clinical sciences.

I am honoured to act as Interim Director of the Institute, build on its solid foundations and lead it into an exciting future within a new structure of our College. We will continue to develop our assets including the BHF Centre of Research Excellence, our BHF 4-Year PhD Programme, our world-class research to address unmet societal needs and our clinical trials programme that defines guideline-based therapies in the most common cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. These are embedded in a culture of interdisciplinary research, mentorship and representation of all members of the Institute in decision-making.

Bring in your ideas as member of the Institute and consider ICAMS as your future home to study and work!
