About

The Centre for Cardiovascular Science at The University of Edinburgh aims to foster and deliver research into the causes, consequences and therapy of the cardiovascular diseases.

Overview

We offer postgraduates the opportunity to work within internationally leading research programmes addressing fundamental development and control of the cardiovascular system and the origins and consequences of cardiovascular disease. The work extends from basic laboratory research through to clinical studies. Join the Cardiovascular Science programme at The University of Edinburgh.

Training and support

The Centre has an excellent track record for training provision to basic scientists and clinicians. Trainees on our programmes receive direct support from at least two academic advisors during their studies and a dedicated thesis committee provides guidance throughout the programme of research. In addition to research training, the Centre hosts an active seminar series for distinguished external speakers and a them-based forum for presentation of internal research at all levels (PhD, post-doctoral, principal investigators).

The Centre offers training to clinicians and basic scientists from biomedical and non-biomedical backgrounds. Several training schemes are offered, covering full- and part-time study.

In addition, there are three distinct 4-year PhD programmes, applications for which should be made directly to the Centre.

Programme Structure

Major research efforts are directed at:

  • the metabolic syndrome and risk factors for cardiovascular disease
  • mechanisms of atheromatous plaque formation and systemic and brain vascular dysfunction
  • renal dysfunction and hypertension
  • development and application of imaging in heart, systemic - and neurovascular diseases
  • exploitation of "Big Data" and e-health science in diabetes and cardiovascular diseases
