Neil Herring


Associate Professor of Cardiovascular Physiology and Consultant Cardiologist

Neil completed his PhD (DPhil) in 2001 and his medical degree in 2004 both from the University of Oxford. In 2007 he was appointed as a Clinical Lecturer and Specialist Registrar in Cardiology at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. In 2011 he was awarded a BHF CRE Fellowship and University Research Lectureship (REF returned 2014), and was made an Associate Professor in 2015 having been awarded an Intermediate Fellowship from the BHF. His basic science research is based in the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics and explores how the autonomic nervous system influences cardiac function and arrhythmias. Neil continues to do clinical work as a Consultant Cardiologist sub-specializing in cardiac pacing and rhythm management devices, and is also widely involved in medical school education as a Tutor and Fellow (by special election) at Keble College, Oxford.  He is co-author of the textbooks "Basic Science for Core Medical Training" (highly commended at the BMA Book Awards 2016) and "Levick's Introduction to Cardiovascular Physiology".
