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 gave 4 hours of lectures on Modelling Blood Flow in the Cardiovascular System at Northeastern University, China, in December 2020. These lectures were part of the "boundless classroom" programme and Jordi was invited as an international expert on the topic.
The group attended the ARTERY20 virtual conference in October 2020. Weiwei Jin gave an oral presentation on pulse wave velocity estimation using machine learning. Tianqi Wang presented his computational study on the effect of abdominal aortic aneurysm on pulse wave morphology.
Jordi Alastruey gave an online seminar at the Institute of Personalized Medicine, Sechenov University in September 2020. His presentation was titled Arterial Pulse Wave Signals – Modelling and Clinical Value.
Weiwei Jin and Tianqi Wang participated in the Virtual Physiological Human 2020 (VPH2020) conference held online in August 2020. Weiwei's presented her work on assessing the ability of 1-D modelling to accurately simulate pulse wave propagation across stenoses and aneurysms. Tianqi showed his recent computational study on portal venous hemodynamic changes after splenectomy in patients with portal hypertension. Abstracts of both studies can be found here.
Jorge Aramburu gave an oral presentation titled Identifying parameters in 1-D/0-D modelling of haemodynamics in the Fontan circulation at the online TOFMOD workshop on congenital heart diseases – a satellite event of the VPH2020 conference organised by INRIA and UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas.
Congratulatins to Sam Vennin on having been awarded a Royal Academy of Engineering Sainsbury Management Fellowship to undertake a full time MBA course at London Business School in August 2020.
Congratulatins to Jorge Mariscal-Harana on successfully defending his PhD research during his viva on 8th April 2020. His thesis is titled Non-Invasive Assessment of the Aortic Pressure Wave: Development and Testing Using In Silico and In Vivo Data.
Jordi Alastruey gave a webinar at the University of Zaragoza in April 2020. His presentation was titled Arterial Blood Flow and Pulse Wave Signals – Modelling and Clinical Applications.
Peter Charlton and Jordi Alastruey participated at the First Working Group Meeting of the COST Action VascAgeNet which was held at Paris Cardiovascular Research Center (PARCC) in February 2020. The three-day meeting was an excellent chance for interdisciplinary and intersectional discussions bringing together industry, clinical expertise, basic research and engineering to join forces to push the concept of vascular ageing.
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.
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
