Applications are invited from ambitious and self-motivated candidates to study cardiac function. Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) reaching epidemic levels worldwide, there is an urgent need to understand heart function in both normal and diseased conditions and develop drug and other treatment of CHD by overcoming the limitation of the translational techniques.

This project will investigate the progression of the disease and diagnose cardiovascular diseases and the improvement of treatments through the interdisciplinary approach. We will learn crucial new information on how human myocardium behaves functionally in health and disease, which will enable us to validate the behaviour of novel drugs for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases such as heart failure. This project will involve mathematical modelling and data analysis from laboratory experiments to understand the cardiac function and in vivo cardiac muscle mechanics.

The Supervisory team will include Prof E. Kim at Fluid and Complex Systems ( and Prof H. Maddock ( at Faculty Research Centre for Sport, Exercise and Life Science at Coventry University.
