Our research

The Cardiovascular group is part of the Cardiovascular and Sport and Exercise Sciences group.

Our research, delivered under six themes, focuses on the function of the heart in health and disease, with additional activity in the area of skeletal muscle. From the level of the single molecule through to the function of the intact heart in vivo, complemented by multi-scale in silico modelling, we deliver world-class research with translational relevance.
