Cardiovascular Research

Enabling the collaborative research in Precision Health that is instrumental in the transition to preventative medicine

Martin Bennett

Imaging  Cardiovascular Research  

Prof Bennett studies the regulation of cell accumulation and interactions in vascular disease, using both human and mouse cells in vitro and models of atherosclerosis with genetic manipulation. He also has a major interest in vulnerable plaque imaging in patients using both invasive and non-invasive modalities.

James Rudd

Cardiovascular Research  Medicine  

Professor Rudd's research interests are in vascular imaging, using CT, MRI and nuclear methods. He applies biomechanical, mathematical methods and AI to refine risk on top of imaging and demographic factors. He works across disease states, including stroke, ischaemic heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, aortic aneurysm, rheumatoid arthritis and pulmonary hypertension. He also has expertise in electronic healthcare record research and is deputy chief clinical information officer at Addenbrooke's Hospital.

Jason Tarkin

Cardiovascular Research  Medicine  

Dr Tarkin's current research programme aims to examine potential clinical translational applications of somatostatin receptor PET/MRI as a marker of inflammation for studying disease mechanisms, use in drug discovery and guiding novel therapies in high-risk patients with cardiovascular disease and large vessel vasculitis.
