NHS Cardiac Research Team

The NHS Cardiac Research Team at the John Radcliffe Hospital was formed in 2010.

Our award-winning team has been involved in a first-in-human study, and has been the first to recruit worldwide in international studies.

  • electrophysiology
  • heart failure device studies.

Study Co-ordinators are responsible for:

  • study set-up
  • research governance
  • contracts negotiation

Data Co-ordinators manage:

  • data administration
  • query resolutions.


We work closely with cardiac consultants in areas such as:

We support cardiovascular research studies that are:

  • investigator-initiated
