Dr. Abhishek Joshi

Dr. Abhishek Joshi

Dr Joshi is a cardiology registrar, sub-specialising in cardiac imaging and interventions. He was recently awarded a BHF Clinical Research Training Fellowship, where he will investigate how individual differences in platelets change the risk of heart attacks, using the advanced proteomic techniques available at the James Black Centre. His PhD is supervised by Prof. Manuel Mayr and Prof. Anthony Mathur, as part of a join project between King’s College, London, and the Bart’s Heart Centre. His long term goal is to better predict, and so hopefully prevent, heart attacks.
