Event description

Description

Atherosclerosis is a serious condition where arteries become clogged with fatty substances (called plaques or atheroma) and is a major cause of Coronary Artery Disease, which restricts blood supply to the heart. It is a major cause of death in the UK and worldwide. In this seminar, two leading experts will present their research into understanding the arterial system and how to effectively treat Atherosclerosis and Coronary Artery Disease.

Spencer Sherwin is Head of Aerodynamics and Professor of Computational Fluid Mechanics in the Department of Aeronautics at Imperial College London. He received his PhD from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at Princeton University and was an undergraduate at Imperial. He will speak about his research into understanding blood flow in the arterial system and its association with arterial disease.

Thomas Lüscher is Professor of Cardiology at Imperial College London and Director of Research, Education & Development at the Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals. He graduated from medical school in Zurich and specialised in interventional cardiology. He will speak about his clinical research into treating atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease.
