Clinical epidemiology / prognosis research / angina pectoris /
Professor Hemingway’s research focuses on cardiovascular
disease in populations. The work of his group aims to investigate the
aetiology and prognosis of specific coronary phenotypes. By using
bespoke cohort studies (primarily among people with established
disease), complemented by systematic reviews and large clinical
datasets, such as the General Practice Research Database and the
Myocardial Infarction National Audit Project, his work is investigating
a range factors which lead to the onset and progression of stable
angina and prognostically important sub-types of heart attack (e.g.
those with and without the electrocardiographic finding of an elevated
ST segment. Professor Hemingway has been involved in several studies,
including the Whitehall cohorts of civil servants, the Anglo
Scandinavian Cardiac Outcomes Trial (ASCOT), the Appropriateness of
Coronary Revascularisation (ACRE), the Appropriateness of Referral and
Investigation of Angina (ARIA) trial and the Optimizing Management of
Angina (OMA) trial.

At UCL Harry Hemingway chairs the Departmental Teaching Committee (2002-) and Joint Departmental Teaching Committee (2006-) overseeing the teaching of epidemiology and public health at undergraduate and postgraduate levels across the Division of Population Health. He teaches courses in cardiovascular epidemiology, for example at the Muenster Summer School, Germany 2007.
