The Cardiovascular and Genomics Research Institute is led by Professor Elijah Behr.

Principal investigators cover a wide range of clinical and basic science with a heavy emphasis on translation to clinical impact. The Institute has internationally respected and recognised expertise in cardiovascular genomics, sports cardiology, cardiac pathology, cellular and small animal modelling focusing on the development of novel therapeutics, diagnostics and risk stratification, in particular for sudden cardiac death. We have strong links with the clinical services in St. George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust where much of our translational research occurs, supporting a strong portfolio of clinical trials and studies.
