Recognising slow damage to the heart

Dr Arjun K Ghosh is a Specialist Registrar in Cardiology, Clinical Research Fellow at the International Centre for Circulatory Health and a Clinical Career Development Fellow at the MRC Unit for Lifelong Health and Ageing.

Arjun joined ICCH in October 2009 through the MRC/Imperial joint PhD studentship programme to further his interest in research on life course effects on cardiac structure and function as measured through echocardiography. The MRC National Survey of Health and Disease is one of the longest running birth cohort studies in the world. These study members have been followed up over 20 times in the last 65 years. During this round of data collection participants have had echocardiograms (ultrasound scans of the heart).

‘Through the course of my PhD, my aim is to uncover the effects of blood pressure, obesity and other risk factors across the life course on current heart structure and function’.
