The Division of Cardiovascular Medicine (CVM) is part of the Radcliffe Department of Medicine (RDM). We are led by Professor Hugh Watkins, who is Head of both CVM and RDM. Research in CVM aims to understand the broad range of mechanisms underlying cardiovascular disease and to use this to focus on translational research (spanning from molecular biology through to clinical application). We adopt a multi-disciplinary approach involving biologists, clinicians, medicinal chemists, physicists, computer scientists and statisticians.
Congratulations to Prof Barbara Casadei who has been elected Vice-President of the European Society of Cardiology. This is a prestigious 2 year appointment. The mission of the European Society of Cardiology is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe.
