Cardiovascular science is one of the seven priority research themes within the Division of Medical Sciences in the University of Oxford.
World class research is conducted across the spectrum of population, clinical and basic science. Particularly notable is the integration of molecular science, epidemiology and physiology, bringing together researchers with interests in the understanding of cardiac and vascular biology at both the molecular level, the level of the whole organism and in populations.
New cross cutting technologies in imaging, computational modeling, statistics, chemistry and engineering will drive future advances.
