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 started acting as Leader for the Working Group Physiological and Technical Background - from Bench to Bedside of the COST Action Network for Research in Vascular Ageing, November 2019.
The group attended the ARTERY19 conference in Budapest, Hungary in October 2019. Weiwei gave an oral presentation on flow mediated dilation. Pete and Sam presented posters.
The group hosted a departmental seminar on Blood Flow Modelling and Analysis, October 2019. Weiwei presented her research on understanding diseased haemodynamics using computational modelling. Joaquin described a new analytical approach for studying pulse wave mechanics in arterial networks.
Congratulations to Weiwei Jin on being awarded the Peter Baker Travelling Fellowship. She collected her award at an official ceremony held in Guy's Campus in November 2019.
Jorge Mariscal-Harana and Sam Vennin gave oral presentations at BioMedEng19 in London, September 2019. Jorge's talk was on the assessment of central blood pressure from blood flow. Sam - who was awarded a BHF Travel Award - presented his work on the influence of cardiac dynamics on the aortic pressure wave. Moreover, he chaired a workshop on public engagement and research impact.
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 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
