Research focuses on the mechanisms and treatment of arterial (occlusive and aneurysmal disease), venous (thrombosis, valve development) and lymphatic disease.

The fellows will be encouraged to seek additional funding from external bodies. They will present their work at local, national and international meetings, publish in high impact journals and submit their research for an appropriate higher degree (e.g. PhD, MD, MS). They will also participate in the teaching of KCL medical students.
The roles are on a Clinical Research grade between £33,154 and £47,018, per annum, inclusive of £2,323 London Allowance.
