Research Highlights

Professor Hunter completed a PhD in novel methods of mapping and ablating persistent atrial fibrillation. During this time, he was a finalist for both the British and the US Young Investigator of the year award (2011).

He is still active in clinical research and is a reader at Queen Mary’s University, London. He runs clinical trials in cardiac electrophysiology, particularly related to catheter ablation of AF, and collaborates with other scientists in a variety of disciplines.

His current research investigates the mechanisms and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.

He has published widely on atrial fibrillation and other areas of heart rhythm management in peer reviewed journals and has edited six books.
