Professor David E Newby

Professor David Newby

Graduating in Medicine from the University of Southampton in 1991, I developed an interest in vascular biology and injury as a British Heart Foundation Junior Research Fellow in Edinburgh. After gaining a Doctorate of Medicine at the University of Southampton and Doctorate of Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh, I was appointed Clinical Senior Lecturer and Reader before gaining a personal chair in 2005. I have recently been awarded a British Heart Foundation Chair in Cardiology at the University of Edinburgh, and am currently Director of the Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility, Director of the Clinical Research Imaging Centre, Director of Research and Development for NHS Lothian, and an Interventional Cardiologist at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. My main research interests lie in experimental medicine studies investigating cardiovascular function with relevance to acute coronary syndromes and heart failure.
