Cardiovascular SRI and Big Data SRI have joined forces to raise awareness of data-related challenges in cardiovascular research and to maximise collaborative opportunities between academic and clinical research groups in Cambridge.

This collaboration will be launched on Monday 24th September 2018 through a free research showcase event at St Catharine's College, and will be followed up in 2019 with a series of workshops supporting collaborations around specific research questions.

Confirmed speakers include researchers from the University of Cambridge, EBI, Wellcome Sanger Institute, Alan Turing Institute, AstraZeneca, and the EPSRC CMIH.

We aim to connect everyone in the wider Cambridge area with interest in data collecting, management, and analysis. The main focus will be on cardiovascular research but the computational challenges and methods are applicable across healthcare and we welcome short talks and poster presentations that are not specific to cardiovascular field.

Call for Abstracts

We are now inviting submissions for poster presentations and short talks around the broad topic of "Data challenges in cardiovascular research".

Examples include, but are not restricted to:

  • Imaging of heart and arteries
  • Prediction of vascular events
  • Prediction of future risk of vascular disease
  • Simulations of heart/vascular function
  • Apps to support clinical trials
  • Apps/devices to monitor long-term conditions.

Abstracts are accepted from academic, clinical, and commercial researchers within Cambridge region. Please contact Katja or Vicky if you aren't quite sure whether your talk or poster would fit this event.

Please submit your abstract HERE by Tuesday 31st July 2018.


This is a free event but it is essential to register to reserve a seat in the McGrath Centre. Please contact Katja or Vicky if you have any questions about this event or if you have trouble registering.

Please Register HERE by Friday 31st August 2018.
