We study blood flow in the cardiovascular system using clinical data and modelling (theoretical, 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.
The group attended the ARTERY22 conference in October 2022. Jingyuan Hong gave an oral presentation on arterial stiffness assessment by pulse arrival time. Samuel Vennin presented in the young investigator session on public engagement.
Jordi Alastruey gave an online seminar at the Ted Rogers Centre for Heart Research in October 2022. His presentation was entitled The role of synthetic pulse wave data in the development of technologies to assess cardiovascular function. A recording of this seminar is available here.
Jordi Alastruey gave 2 hours of lectures on An Introduction to Arterial Blood Flow in The Cardiovascular System at Harbin Institute of Technology, China, in October 2022. These lectures were part of the China Ministry of Education's "111 plan" which aims to invite academics in the world to share the state of the art of their academic research to widen the horizon of Chinese students. In the long-term, the program aims to explore potential collaborations between Chinese and international institutions.
Francesco Piccioli and Jordi Alastruey took part in the 9th World Congress of Biomechanics (WCB) held in Taipei, Taiwan in July 2022. Francesco gave an oral presentations titled "On the relative role of cardiac and vascular properties in raising pulse pressure". Jordi was an invited speaker to the session Clinical Application for Biomechanics in Cardiopulmonary System. He gave the talk titled The relevant role of in silico pulse wave databases in machine learning-based pulse wave analysis. He also co-organised and moderated the session Biofluids in Medicine, and co-moderated the session Clinical Application for Biomechanics in Cardiopulmonary System.
Jordi Alastruey wrote an editorial together with Jonathan Mynard for the special issue Reduced order modelling for cardiovascular problems published in the Int. J. Numer. Meth. Biomed. Eng. in July 2022.
Weiwei Jin, Francesco Piccioli and Jordi Alastruey took part in the 7th International Conference on Computational and Mathematical Biomedical Engineering in Milan, Italy in June 2022.
Weiwei and Francesco gave oral presentations titled, respectively, "Pulse wave velocity estimation from the radial pressure wave using recurrent neural networks" and "On the assessment of cardiac properties from pulse waves - A computational study". Jordi co-organised a mini-symposium on cardiac function and coronary flow.
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
