Short biography of member:
Derek Hausenloy is Professor at University College London and Duke-National University of Singapore Medical School and. He is a Senior Consultant and Clinician Scientist at the National Heart Centre, Singapore. He conducts both basic and clinical research in the areas of ischaemic heart disease and heart failure. His research focus is on discovering novel therapies for protecting the heart against the detrimental effects of acute ischaemia/reperfusion injury (IRI) in order to prevent the onset of heart failure with a focus on mitochondria as targets for cardioprotection. He uses a translational approach to cardioprotection ranging from cellular and animal models of acute IRI to proof-of-concept clinical studies in acute myocardial infarction and cardiac bypass surgery patients, and finally to large multi-center randomised clinical trials focused on clinical outcomes. He is also interested in both small animal and clinical MRI and cardiac PET imaging in the context of acute myocardial infarction and cardioprotection. Prof Hausenloy has been PI on over 30 research grants, and he has authored over 210 papers. He became chair of the EU-CARDIOPROTECTION COST Action CA16225 in Oct 2017.
