Daniel leads pre-clinical cardiovascular imaging at UCL’s Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging (CABI). His research focuses on developing and applying novel multi-modality imaging approaches for the investigation of cardiomyopathy and therapy. Using serial cardiacMRI, ultrasound and SPECT/CT, Daniel non-invasively investigates the mechanisms that underlie cardiac disease and result in heart failure. His specific area of interest is cardiac regeneration through stem cell therapy – an emerging research field which can benefit enormously from translatable basic science. His ongoing research into enhancement of stem cell homing, retention, viability and differentiation, assessed in vivo using MRI, radionuclide, fluorescent and bioluminescent labelling of donor cells, canprovide data essential to current clinical trials of stem cells.
