Dr Ricardo Petraco is a NIHR Lecturer in interventional Cardiology at Imperial College London, performing his clinical work at Hammersmith Hospital. He has been working with coronary physiology at Imperial since 2010 on the development of the novel instantaneous wave-Free Ratio (iFR). Dr Petraco’s work with iFR has led to the proposition of the Hybrid iFR-FFR approach and has established iFR’s close relationship with coronary flow reserve (CFR). His interests in computer programming has led to the development of a software for automated analysis of coronary haemodynamics signals which is been used by many leading centres in the world. He has also pioneered the algorithm for iFR calculation without the need for an ECG signal, an approach which is now implemented in clinical consoles. He has secured several research grants and published extensively in the field of coronary physiology. His current research interests are on the development of methodologies to assess stenosis severity in situations of haemodynamic instability and on the understanding of how medical therapies modulate coronary resistance and flow. Clinically, his interests also include the use of intravascular imaging modalities to optimise PCI and has been engaged in IVUS training for cathlab staff and cardiology trainees.

Dr. Nijjer is a Consultant Cardiologist and Senior Clinical Lecturer at Imperial College London. He works at both the Hammersmith Hospital and Chelsea & Westminster Foundation NHS Trust, as well as leading private Hospitals in London including the Wellington and Cromwell Hospitals. He is the President-elect of the Cardiology Section of the Royal Society of Medicine, and he was selected as an Emerging Leader for the British Cardiovascular Society. He specialises in coronary intervention and focused his clinical practice in the management of ischaemic heart disease. His practice encompasses all aspects of cardiology. In his PhD research, funded by the Medical Research Council (UK) and awarded by Imperial College he developed of new intracoronary physiology techniques, specifically iFR and iFR-pullback and Co-registration. He has published almost 100 peer-reviewed papers in respected journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine and The Lancet. He has also written several books.
