Daniel is a British Heart Foundation Senior Basic Science Research Fellow and leads pre-clinical cardiovascular imaging at UCL’s Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging.

Daniel's team develop image guided therapies for cardiovascular disease. He has published over 70 research papers that utilise advanced imaging technology to inform on and enhance the success of experimental treatments.

Prior to joining UCL in 2013, Daniel worked with Profs Sian Harding and Michael Schneider at Imperial College London. He led preclinical cardiac imaging for the National Heart and Lung Institute and investigated cell therapy, diffuse cardiac fibrosis, stress cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and transgenic models of disease using MRI, ultrasound and optical tomography.

Daniel studied for his DPhil at The University of Oxford in the Laboratory of Prof. Kieran Clarke. During his PhD he used MRI to assess the benefits of stem cell therapy for the infarcted heart, tracked the location of iron mircosphere labelled bone marrow stromal cells and cardiac stem cells in vivo, and performed extensive characterization of cardiac function after stem cell therapy and in transgenic models of heart disease, including hypertrophic and dilated cardiomyopathy and muscular dystrophy.

Research Summary

Daniel's research focuses on developing and applying novel multi-modality imaging approached for the investigation of heart disease and regenerative therapies. Using serial cardiac MRI, ultrasound, photoacoustics and PET/SPECT/CT, Daniel non-invasively investigates the mechanisms that underlie cardiac disease and result in heart failure. His specific area of expertise is cardiac regeneration through tissue engineering and 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 and biomaterials, can provide data essential to current clinical trials of regenerative medicine.

Teaching Summary
Daniel is founder and co-director of UCL's MSc in Advanced Biomedical Imaging - a course which trains the next generation of innovative imaging scientists.
