In this role you will provide research skills and support to the ReST Study (a feasibility Study on Screening of Re latives of Patients Affected by Non-S yndromic T horacic Aortic Diseases). This study will test the hypothesis that a tailored genetic and imaging screening of first- and second-degree relatives of patients affected by non-syndromic thoracic aortic diseases (NS-TADs) warrants early recognition of newly affected individuals. These individuals constitute a specific population of patients, requiring dedicated imaging surveillance and/or earlier prophylactic surgery.
You will work with state-of-the-art research facilities, including dedicated imaging and genetic screening programmes in a recently built Interventional Medicine Facility for clinical research. You will be responsible for patient scanning, blood sampling analysis, data acquisitionand the analysis of all imaging and genetic data, in conjunction with the multi-disciplinary team at Glenfield Hospital. You will also perform literature searches and write a first draft of research papers on the effectiveness of such screening programmes.
The post is suitable for a clinically trained investigator, particularly those in specialist training for cardiology, vascular or cardiothoracic surgery, or for those eligible and planning to enter the specialist training grade and who are interested in pursuing a period of full time research leading to a higher degree (MD or PhD).
This post is funded by the NIHR Leicester BRC Cardiovascular theme based at Glenfield Hospital. The post is for two years in the first instance.
