Dr. Hernán Mejía-Rentería is an Interventional Cardiologist at the Department of Cardiology, Hospital Clinico San Carlos, Madrid, Spain. He graduated from the Medical School of Universidad del Valle (Colombia) and underwent specialty training in Cardiology at Hospital Clinico San Carlos, Madrid, Spain. Subsequently, he completed his subspecialty training as Interventional Cardiologist in 2017 at the same institution. Dr. Mejía-Rentería obtained a PhD (Cum Laude) in coronary physiology in 2021 at Universidad Complutense de Madrid. He is a member of European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI) and has published over 70 indexed scientific articles on coronary physiology, functional angiography, intracoronary imaging techniques and Takotsubo Syndrome, and is author of chapters in different academic textbooks. His main research areas at present include coronary physiology assessment with invasive and angiography derived techniques in patients with coronary artery disease or ischemia with non-obstructive coronary arteries.

Ranil de Silva is Senior Lecturer in Clinical Cardiology at the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London and Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at the Royal Brompton Hospital, London, UK. He obtained his medical degree from King’s College London and undertook his PhD in PET imaging at the MRC Cyclotron Unit under Attilio Maseri. His post-doctoral research was at the National Institutes of Health, USA working on MRI guided endovascular intervention and cardiovascular regenerative medicine. His research focuses on imaging to guide the diagnosis, risk stratification and evaluation of novel therapies for patients with acute and chronic coronary syndromes. He leads translational interdisciplinary research programs on coronary atherosclerotic plaque biomechanics evaluated by fluid-structure interaction modelling, post-myocardial infarction left ventricular remodelling using diffusion tensor cardiovascular magnetic resonance, and coronary sinus reducer for treating coronary microvascular dysfunction. He has published more than 100 peer reviewed articles, including Circulation, European Heart Journal, JACC, Nature journals, Lancet and NEJM. He has an h-index 43. He leads the Specialist Angina Service at the Royal Brompton Hospital, which is a nationally recognised service for patients with refractory angina. He is an interventional cardiologist undertaking complex interventional procedures, coronary sinus reduction, LV support and the full range of intracoronary imaging and physiology techniques. He also has an interest in resistant hypertension and has experience in renal denervation.
