Derek Hausenloy is Professor in the Cardiovascular & Metabolic Disorders Signature Program, Duke-National University of Singapore Medical School, and Director of National Heart Research Institute Singapore (NHRIS) and Senior Consultant from Department of Cardiology at the National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS). He is also Professor in the Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, University College London. He conducts basic, translational and clinical research in the areas of ischaemic heart disease, heart failure, cardioprotection, and cardiac MRI. His main research focus is on discovering novel therapies for protecting the heart against acute ischaemia/reperfusion injury and heart failure. His research ranges from cellular and animal disease models of cardiovascular disease to proof-of-concept clinical studies in acute myocardial infarction, heart failure and cardiac bypass surgery patients, and finally to large multi-centre randomised clinical trials focused on clinical outcomes. He also uses human iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes to model cardiomyopathies in order to elucidate underlying mechanisms and identify novel therapeutic targets and has an interest in discovering new treatment targets for peripheral arterial disease. He has been the Private Investigator (PI) on over 40 research grants (totalling $30M), and has authored 332 papers (with 38,448 citations), and his H-index is 96.
