Burdon Sanderson Cardiac Science Centre
The Burdon Sanderson Cardiac Science Centre (BSCSC) is a multidisciplinary centre, established in 2005, and jointly directed by Richard Vaughan-Jones and David Paterson. It is dedicated to the science of normal and abnormal cardiac function. The overarching aims of the BSCSC are to understand the physiology of the heart at the molecular, cellular and tissue levels, focusing on key areas like regulation of intracellular ionic concentration and metabolism, and the neural control of cardiac activity, and to model these events using multi-scale computational approaches. The BSCSC is uniquely placed in Oxford to successfully achieve these combined goals, because of its onsite linking of experimentation with integrative modeling.
