Welcome to the website of the Cardiovascular Group at Cambridge University. The Cardiovascular Group is headed by Professor Jonathan Mant.
As part of the Primary Care unit we are a team of multi-disciplinary researchers that focus our research on patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD) including: stroke, diabetes, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, hypertension, cognitive function relating to CVD and obesity.
