Dr Marietta Charakida
Senior Clinical Lecturer
- Consultant in Fetal and Paediatric Cardiology
I studied medicine at Kapodistriako University, Athens, Greece. I completed training in Paediatric Cardiology at Great Ormond Street Hospital and Evelina Children’s Hospital and was appointed as Senior Clinical Lecturer and Honorary Consultant in Fetal and Paediatric Cardiology at Evelina Children’s Hospital and Kings College Hospital in 2015.
My research interest has focused on determining how risk factors such as obesity, hyperlipidemia, inflammation can contribute in the initiation and progression of arterial disease in the young. My current research interest involves unraveling maternal, fetal and postnatal factors which contribute to development of cardiovascular disease. I am also working on establishing lifestyle modification strategies which can impact on the quality of life of patients with congenital heart disease.
