People

Our group includes cardiologists (general and EP), stroke neurologists, geriatricians, general practitioners, epidemiologists and health economists, nurses, pharmacists physiotherapists and other allied health professionals, and patient advocates and health administrators.  Our members include many of the best known researchers in atrial fibrillation alongside a number of early career researchers working on studies related to AF screening, or with a strong interest in AF screening.  A full list is shown below.

Our members come from 37 countries including: Europe/UK and Ireland; Asia including India, China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia and Thailand;  the Americas including USA,  Canada, Mexico,  Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina;  the Middle East including Saudi Arabia;  Oceania including Australia and New Zealand so we can claim to have a global perspective and vision.  We hope to achieve more representation from Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East and are looking to find members from those countries with a strong interest in AF screening.
