National Heart and Lung Institute, London (United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland)

Kiran joined the National Heart and Lung Institute in October 2018 to start his PhD research with Dr Fu Siong Ng. The focus of his research is to investigate adiposity-associated arrhythmogenesis. He read medicine at King’s College London, graduating with triple distinction in 2013. In 2010, was awarded a British Heart Foundation scholarship to conduct research into stable angina with Professor Michael Marber; he graduated with a first class intercalated BSc in physiology and the McDowall prize the same year. In 2012, he was awarded three travel bursaries to perform research in developmental cardiology with Professor Calum MacRae at Harvard Medical School; he was runner-up for the Young Investigator Award (2012) at the London Cardiovascular Society for this work. In 2014 he was funded by Isaac Shapera Trust to undertake research with Professor Pier Lambiase. Kiran gained membership of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP) in 2016 and began his specialist cardiology training in 2017.
