Finished Building 1The Burdon Sanderson Cardiac Science Centre is a multidisciplinary centre set within the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics (DPAG). The centre was established in 2005, and jointly directed by Richard Vaughan-Jones and David Paterson. It is dedicated to the science of normal and abnormal cardiac function. The overarching aims of the centre are to understand the physiology of the heart at the molecular, cellular and tissue levels, focusing on key areas like regulation of intracellular ionic concentration and metabolism, and the neural control of cardiac activity, and to model these events using multi-scale computational approaches. The centre is uniquely placed in Oxford to successfully achieve these combined goals, because of its onsite linking of experimentation with integrative modeling. The centre is named after Professor John Burdon Sanderson, an English Physiologist.
