Dr Giovanni Biglino
Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children
  • Research Associate
  • Cardiovascular Imaging Group
  • Congenital Heart Disease
  • Faculty of Pop Health Sciences
Studied Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London. During my degree I had research experiences at the Hydraulics Laboratory of the University of Ghent (Belgium) as well as Harefield Hospital (Imperial College London). I completed my PhD in Cardiovascular mechanics at the Brunel Institute for Bioengineering in London, focusing on the experimental study of the Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump (IABP), a cardiac assist device. I then joined the team of the Centre for Cardiovascular Imaging (UCL/Great Ormond Street Hospital), focusing on the study of congenital heart defects. As a post-doctoral researcher, I was also involved in a trans-Atlantic research network funded by the Leducq Foundation focusing on single ventricle physiology. After nearly 3 years of post-doctoral research, I gained a research fellowship with the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) which I am currently carrying out in the same group, looking at ventricular modelling.
