Research profile and key clinical specialties

Our group focuses on the development of novel therapeutic strategies for the treatment of cardiovascular disease and pulmonary hypertension.

Following successful first-in-human and phase I/II studies, recent projects have developed products that are now have regulatory approval and provide reimbursement.

Current studies focus on the use of novel technologies to improve clinical study methodology and clinical practise.

I work clinically as part of the interventional cardiologist and pulmonary hypertension teams in Sheffield.
