Research in AVIC
AVIC is a multi-functional unit that supports a broad range of research projects, with a common acute vascular theme. Clinical research fellows work closely with scientists from a range of disciplines (physicists, engineers) in the development and application of imaging for characterisation of cardiovascular disease, stroke and vascular disorders and for assessment of response to treatment.
We welcome new projects; informal enquiries should be made to Professor Robin Choudhury, AVIC Clinical Director at the earliest opportunity.
