    Dr Jamil Mayet is a Consultant Cardiologist and Chief of Service of Cardiovascular Medicine at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. His clinical interests are in the assessment of chest pain, shortness of breath, the cardiovascular evaluation of patients with high blood pressure, the assessment of the heart in pregnancy and the assessment of the heart in athletes.

    Dr Mayet has a specialist interest in cardiac imaging and in particular echocardiography. He has been clinical lead in echocardiography at St Marys Hospital since 2000 and has lead the implementation of several highly specialised new echocardiographic diagnostic techniques. Dr Mayets research interests are in the clinical application of new technologies, which allow the development of new treatments for the heart. Specifically he has interests in the physiology of coronary flow and blood pressure as well as the factors associated with the development of atherosclerosis. He has a longstanding interest in cardiac structural and functional variations in health and disease, particularly in hypertension and athletic training. He also has an interest in variations in cardiovascular disease in different ethnic groups.

    Dr Mayet has been invited to lecture nationally and internationally in the fields of echocardiography, hypertension, diastolic dysfunction, left ventricular hypertrophy, heart failure, coronary and arterial physiology and coronary artery disease. He is a founding member of the International Centre for Circulatory Health, a centre of excellence on the St Marys Hospital Campus of Imperial College London with an integrated research strategy in the field of circulatory medicine and a remit to apply the results of scientific endeavour to advance standards of care in prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease to reduce the expected increase in disease burden around the world.
