Dr Tom Lumbers is an Honorary Consultant Cardiologist at Barts Heart Centre, HDR UK Fellow at University College London, and Visiting Scientist at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT. He received his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology at Imperial College London and subsequently completed post-doctoral training in Genetic Epidemiology at University College London. Tom’s research focuses on defining the genetic architecture of heart failure and left ventricular dysfunction to generate insights into causal factors and molecular disease mechanisms. He co-founded the HERMES Consortium, an international collaboration in heart failure genetics. He is developing tools to deliver scalable and validated disease phenotypes using real-world data to enable large scale genetic analysis of disease subtypes. He co-leads the phenotype working group at BigData@Heart, an EU public-private consortium (www.bigdata-heart.eu).
