My name is Vi-Hue Tran and I am a Research Assistant based at the Institute of Cardiovascular Science in UCL, London. I have been involved in the morphology of the congenitally malformed heart since 1997, when I first started at the Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College, London working under the expert supervision and guidance of Professor Robert Anderson as a research technician.
In January 2008, I obtained my Master of Philosophy degree in cardiac morphology reviewing the inter-relationship between bronchial and systemic to pulmonary collateral arteries in hearts with tetralogy of Fallot and pulmonary atresia.
My main role is providing education. This involves teaching cardiac morphology to UCL MSc and medical students. I also give cardiac morphology lectures and live video demonstrations within my unit and at various national venues such as the Echocardiography course in Cardiff and the European Association of Cardio-thoracic Surgery (EACTS) course in Windsor.
