Dr Stuart D Rosen
Stuart Rosen was educated at Cambridge and London Universities, with higher training in adult cardiology at Charing Cross, Hammersmith and St Mary’s Hospitals, London. Dr Rosen is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (London), the European Society of Cardiology and the American College of Cardiology.
He has broad clinical expertise in general adult cardiology, with particular interests in heart failure, syncope and autonomic nervous system function and medicolegal aspects of cardiovascular disease.
Current research interests include:
London Life Sciences Prospective Population (LOLIPOP) Study - Heart failure platform (Co-principal investigator with Prof JS Kooner).
The LOLIPOP program is an investigation of Indian Asian and Northern European men and women, recruited from the lists of 58 General Practitioners in West London, aimed at identifying incident cardiac, renal and metabolic (diabetes) disease. The heart failure component of the program aims to assess prevalent and incident heart failure in Indian Asians (IA) vs European whites (EW); to investigate clinical outcomes of heart failure in IA and to identify the determinants of incident and prevalent heart failure and of its outcomes in IA.
Role of the autonomic nervous system in the patho-genesis of cardiac disease.
Dr Rosen's group has ongoing studies to assess heart rate variability, baroreflex sensitivity and other non-invasively measured autonomic parameters in cardiac disease, especially heart failure. The group is currently embarking on a further exploration of the relationship between the parameters listed and aspects of respiratory physiology.
Dr Rosen is active in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, examinations and supervision of doctoral theses and has a publication record which includes 55 papers in peer review journals as well as 2 books and several book chapters. He has acted as a reviewer for 17 major professional journals.
