More in this section Institute of Cardiovascular Research


The Institute aims to bring investigators interested in all aspects of cardiovascular research under one umbrella providing them with infrastructure as well as network support. Its aim is to become an international centre of excellence in the field of cardiovascular medicine.

Realising that patient care improves when clinicians are immersed in a research environment, Ashford & St Peters’ Hospital led a ground breaking partnership with Royal Holloway to establish ICR2UL in early 2015. This is one of the first academic institutes to be created by a district general hospital in a science partnership with an internationally acclaimed University. ICR2UL has recently also partnered with local Cardiovascular Clinical Advisory Groups. Other NHS clinical facilities are expected to join this institute in the very near future. 

It is expected that interaction between leading cardiovascular researchers and NHS clinical staff will result not only in improved care to patients and better clinical outcomes but also generate original research that can translate from the laboratory to the bedside.
