Elsa Mauricio Reus
I am a pharmacist by training, with a MSc in Research and I currently finishing my PhD at the University of Münster, Germany. On February 2019, I joined the Oxford Translational Cardiovascular Research group of Professor Charalambos Antoniades (Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Radcliffe Department of Medicine).
As a Clinical Researcher, my main role is to run a study that aims to validate perivascular Fat Attenuation Index (FAI) in multiple computed tomography platforms. FAI is a new biomarker that detects vascular inflammation in the human coronary arteries using routine coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA). In the CRISP-CT study, recently published in the Lancet, the group demonstrated that FAI predicts all-cause and cardiac mortality over and above clinical risk factors and the current state-of-the-art interpretation of CCTA.
At the moment, I am working as well on the AdipoRedOx study which focuses on looking at the interactions between adipose tissue, vascular wall and myocardium in human atherosclerosis.
