Research

Dr Ruparelia is actively involved in all aspects of basic science, translational (bench-to-bedside) and clinical research. In addition to his medical degrees, he was awarded a DPhil (PhD) from Balliol College, University of Oxford in 2013 investigating the monocyte response to acute myocardial infarction and also holds a research MSc in interventional cardiology awarded by the San Raffaele Scientific Institute, Milan, Italy.

He has been the recipient of a number of research prizes to date and in addition to his clinical consultant appointment is an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at Imperial College London.

He is the author of >150 publications including original papers, editorials, review articles and book chapters spanning all aspects of cardiovascular science and clinical cardiology.

Currently, he is actively involved in a number of investigator driven and commercial studies and regularly speaks at national and international meetings in addition to being a reviewer for a number of high impact factor clinical journals.
