Biography

Dr Arjun Ghosh MBBS, MRCP (UK), MRCP (Card), MSc, PhD, FHEA, FACC, is a Consultant Cardiologist at Barts Heart Centre (BHC), St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, London and at University College London Hospital (UCLH).

He is the first Cardiologist in the UK to be appointed specifically in Cardio-Oncology and helped establish Cardio-Oncology services at both these hospitals. The services deal with screening for cardiotoxicity, monitoring patients on potentially cardiotoxic therapy and managing cardiac complications of cancer therapy. Alongside the clinical service, Cardio-Oncology research is undertaken at both sites and there is a thriving educational component to the service with fellows from the UK and across the world.

Arjun is also actively involved in developing Cardio-Oncology guidelines and changing practice through the British Society of Echocardiography, British Cardio-Oncology Society and International Cardio-Oncology Society. He also runs the UK’s only national Cardio-Oncology Study Day and is organizing the first European Cardio-oncology Symposium which will be held in Barcelona in October 2019.
