Title: Assessing Morphology in all Dimensions: 3D Analysis of Face and Brain

Abstract: The BHF Data Science Centre works with a wide range of partners including patients, researchers, clinicians and the NHS to enable data-led research into the causes, prevention and treatment of diseases of the heart and circulation, including heart attacks, stroke and dementia.

Our aims are – 1) To be a UK centre of expertise for cardiovascular data science
2) To create strong partnerships to improve health data science infrastructure and reduce barriers to research
3) To involve patients and the public to build trust and ensure that our work meets people’s needs

The purpose of the smartphone and wearable theme within the Centre is to support researchers to understand how “smart” data from these devices can be used to develop new approaches to improving prediction, diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of cardiovascular diseases. Tim is Associate Director of the British Heart Foundation Data Science Centre, where he leads the Smartphone and Wearable data theme. This theme aims to support the entire research community to find ways to use smartphone, wearable and medical device data to improve health and healthcare.

Bio: Tim is Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of Sheffield and a consultant Cardiologist at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. He leads the EPSRC South Yorkshire Digital Health Hub. His career has spanned academia and industry across genetics, vascular biology, drug discovery and health data science.
