We investigate blood flow in the cardiovascular system using clinical data and modelling (computational and experimental). Learn about our research and contact us . Our group is part of the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences at King's College London. We are based in St Thomas's Hospital, a leading research centre in the heart of London.
Jordi Alastruey and Sam Vennin ran the summer school course Applied Maths: Understanding Engineering through Numbers for the King's College London International Summer School, July 2019. The aim of this course was to introduce mathematical concepts and methods used to solve real-world engineering problems.
We welcomed Prof Lisheng Xu from Northeastern University, China in July 2019. Lisheng presented the work from his research group and we explored opportunities for collaboration between the two groups.
Weiwei Jin and Jorge Mariscal-Harana attended the 6th International Conference on Computational & Mathematical Biomedical Engineering in Sendai, Japan on 10-12 June 2019.
Both gave oral presentations: Weiwei talked about "A systematic comparison between 1-D and 3-D haemodynamics in diseased arterial models", while Jorge's talk was titled "An assessment of algorithms to estimate central blood pressure from non-invasive measurements".
Sam Vennin gave a Pint of Science talk titled "Hypertension: Beyond the numbers" in May 2019.
Weiwei Jin, Jorge Mariscal-Harana and Sam Vennin presented their research at the 14th International Symposium on Biomechanics in Vascular Biology and Cardiovascular Disease at Imperial College London, UK on 11-12 April 2019.
Jordi chaired a session on Pulse Wave Analysis while Sam presented his research on the role of ventricular ejection pattern on augmented pressure. Weiwei and Jorge presented posters.
Jordi Alastruey was invited to give a webinar for the European ITN Personalised In-slico Cardiology, Mar 2019. His presentation was titled Computational Blood Flow – Arterial Pulse Wave Modelling.
Using the group's cardiovascular simulator rig, Ye Li and Weiwei Jin conducted a practical lab session for our third year UG students of "BEng/MEng Biomedical Engineering" in March 2019.
Jordi Alastruey was invited to give a seminar at the Department of Bioengineering , Imperial College London, Feb 2019. His seminar was titled "Pulse Wave Analysis - Modelling and Clinical Value".
We are based in St Thomas' Hospital, close to the London Eye, Westminster Bridge, and Big Ben, right in the center of London:
St Thomas' Hospital, Westminster Bridge Road, SE1 7EH London, UK
