Acute myocardial infarction (MI) is a leading global cause of premature illness and death. Colin's research focuses on the significance of injury and repair pathways following acute MI. Colin leads a research team in Glasgow which exploits novel MRI methods to study myocardial injury and repair in preclinical MI models and in patients with recent MI. He is committed to delivering the best possible research with the potential to improve patient health and wellbeing. Colin's team currently support several multicentre MRI research projects in the United Kingdom. He is also helping to set up MRI methods he learned in North America in other groups across the UK.
