Getting involved with research
Re – Paediatric Cardiovascular Disease group and Imaging group to be established in 2017
We would like to announce for people who are interested in taking part in out Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) groups that there is free training at the Biomedical Research Centre, at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation trust. Please see the advert below and contact the PPI Project Manager; Claire.O’Neill@gstt.nhs.uk. Alternatively, you can register your interest through this link.
HTC Paediatric Technologies Technical Lead to Speak at Extreme Medicine Expo 2016
We are delighted to announce that our Paediatric Technologies Technical Lead Dr Pablo Lamata was invited to represent the Cardiovascular HTC at this years International Extreme Medicine Expo conference.
Being held in Glasgow from Friday 18th to Monday 21st November, Dr Lamata will present some of his work on:
“The Synergetic Confluence of Computational Models and Clinical Data in Cardiovascular Medicine”.
“Models are conceptual and simplified explanations of experimental observations. Computational technologies enable building patient specific in-silico models of cardiovascular anatomy and function. These models provide a structured framework for the integration of different sources of clinical data while adhering to physical constraints. This talk will use two case studies to illustrate how to create diagnostic and prognostic value in the confluence between computational cardiac models and clinical data. The surgical management of congenital defects will be the focus of the first example, where clinical decisions might be improved through the adoption of computational anatomy tools. Then, the talk will describe how to improve current non-invasive techniques for the estimation of the dysfunctional severity of blood flow constrictions such as those caused by a valve stenosis or a dilated ventricle. The novel technologies might improve the prediction of sudden cardiac death, and track the progression towards a high performance heart. “
Call for Patient and Public Involvement group in Paediatric Cardiovascular Disease
Question – Do you see what others often don’t see?
Question – Do you want to put something back into the NHS and medical community?
If so, you may be the people we are looking for! We are looking for potential panel members who are interested in making a difference to our research portfolio.
The Cardiovascular Healthcare Technology Cooperative is setting up a Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) group, specifically for our Paediatric sub-theme.
This group will be set up to help develop and deliver studies that are investigating the benefits of medical devices, imaging and healthcare technology with children.
For further information on PPI please read our Biomedical Research Center (BRC) partners website. If you are keen to talk to one our our team, please email Dr Kieran Brack (HTC Project Manager) on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you
