Lead: Professor Harry Hemingway (h.hemingway@ucl.ac.uk)

Professor Hemingway's research focuses on cardiovascular disease in populations. Broadly, the aim is to generate new research evidence at multiple stages in translational pathways for improving our understanding of why cardiovascular diseases occur, and then progress, in ways which can have an impact on clinical practice, healthcare and public health policy. A key element of the approach of his work is to exploit new opportunities for large scale research arising from linking electronic health records, including research on cardiovascular disease in populations.

There are three strands to this work:

  1. Novel clinical cohorts
  2. Exploitation of linked electronic health records
  3. Methods development.

This research is undertaken via collaborative studies and partnerships:
