Research

Andrew has a passion for science and medicine with strengths in strategic thinking and execution that have contributed significantly to developing new transformative treatments. His research impact has coincided with, and also significantly influenced, an era of enhanced awareness of the impact of arrhythmias on health with a research programme designed at its outset both to increase biological understanding and also provide real world benefit. Patient safety has been central with knowledge arising from his University-based lab work influencing practice most prominently through drug regulation across both the UK and Europe.
