Welcome to the Wellington Cardiovascular Research Group

Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death, and a significant cause or morbidity in the western world. The Wellington Cardiovascular Research Group undertakes basic science projects, translational research and clinical research into ischaemic heart disease, heart failure and cardiac arrhythmia.

Our current areas of research interest include platelet reactivity and inflammation in ischaemic heart disease, technical aspects of interventional cardiology, mechanisms of ventricular arrhythmia, provision of implantable cardioverter defibrillator therapy, applications of novel imaging techniques to aid in diagnostic processes, and scoring tools for risk stratification in cardiac disease.

Our academic building is temporarily closed for seismic reasons but our top class teaching, studying and research programmes remain in full swing.
