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

Data Co-ordinators manage:

  • data administration

We work closely with cardiac consultants in areas such as:

  • intervention

  • surgery
  • cardiac rhythm management.

We support cardiovascular research studies that are:
