Professor John Chambers

Guys and St Thomas Hospital, London (United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland)

Member of:

European Society of Cardiology

Professor Chambers has a career-long interest in heart valve disease. His research is principally into improving the timing of surgery and developing new models of care-delivery. He set up one of the first specialist valve clinics in the world and has explored the use of hand-held echocardiography and scientist-led murmur clinics for the early detection of valve disease. He has chaired or been a member of working groups on standards defining specialist valve clinics, endocarditis services and heart valve centres as well as the imaging of aortic stenosis and prosthetic valves. He is a member of the ISO committee setting standards for testing novel prosthetic valves. He was a founder member and first president of the British Heart Valve Society. He teaches widely and has written books on a range of cardiac subjects including general echocardiography, valve disease, acute medicine, cardiac biomarkers and a patient information book on heart valve disease.
