Dr Heeraj Bulluck

Profile

I am a full-time interventional cardiologist with a keen academic interest. I joined LGI in September 2021 and I have a honorary senior lecture appointment with the university.

I am originally from Mauritius and completed my medical degree in Mandarin from Beijing, China. I trained in cardiology in the East of England Deanery, rotating in hospitals in Norwich, Ipswich and Cambridge. I obtained my PhD from the University College London on the role of tissue characterisation by CMR in STEMI.

I also completed a complex coronary interventional fellowship at the Golden Jubilee Hospital in Glasgow.

Research interests

My research interests expand from assessing reperfusion injury in STEMI using cardiovascular magnetic resonance and invasive coronary physiology, to finding novel approaches to minimise reperfusion injury and post-MI adverse LV remodelling.

I am also interested in exploring the role of intramyocardial haemorrhage as a precursor to poor long-term outcomes in STEMI and the use of non-contrast based CMR in the risk-stratification of STEMI patients.
