Most cardiovascular condition ultimately lead to heart failure. More than 550,000 people in the UK live with heart failure. One-year mortality after admission for heart failure is >30%.
The King’s BHF Centre aims to make significant advances in the prevention, diagnosis, stratification and treatment of heart failure.
Using an inter-disciplinary integrative approach, the major themes of research activity include:
- Molecular mechanisms in heart failure: understanding the molecular mechanisms that drive or prevent heart failure and how to potentially target them
- Integrative cardiovascular mechanobiology: investigating how derailment of mechanically-induced responses contributes to heart failure
- State-of-the-art in vivo imaging: developing novel disruptive technology to improve the diagnosis, stratification and treatment of heart failure
- Signatures and trajectories of heart failure: parsing the heterogenous natural history and clinical course of heart failure to develop more personalized and effective management
We are pleased to hear from enthusiastic and talented researchers who wish to work in the Centre, including those in the early stages of an independent career.
