Professor of Cardiology
University of Leeds
John Greenwood is a Professor of Cardiology in the Leeds Institute for Cardiovascular and Diabetes Research (LICAMM) and Consultant Cardiologist at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, where he specialises in coronary intervention and cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging.
His main area of research is the diagnosis and treatment of stable and unstable coronary artery disease. In terms of diagnostics, this particularly involves the use of CMR in terms of its development and validation through clinical trials. He was Chief Investigator on the landmark CE-MARC trial (Lancet 2012) which compared the diagnostic accuracy, cost effectiveness and prognostic ability of CMR and SPECT against X-ray angiography. He was also Chief Investigator of the BHF funded, CE-MARC II trial, a UK multi-centre, 3-way RCT comparing the management strategies of CMR vs. AHA SPECT criteria vs. UK NICE guidelines (CG95) for patients with stable chest pain. In terms of therapeutics, he is collaborating on a number of major multi-centre clinical trials designed to improve outcomes in patients undergoing primary PCI for acute ST elevation myocardial infarction.
He is Vice President (Education & Research) of the British Cardiovascular Society (BCS) and Chair of the scientific programme committee (2017-2020), and sits on BCS Council, Board, and Executive. He was elected to the Board of BSCMR (British Society of Cardiovascular MR) in 2009, and is now BSCMR President (2018-2020). He is past-Chair of the SCMR clinical trials committee and is a member of the SCMR scientific programme committee. For 10 years Prof. Greenwood led the supra-regional CMR service in Leeds, one of the UKs largest, and as an interventional cardiologist actively contributes to the coronary intervention service for West Yorkshire, including the regional primary PCI service. He is Director of the Cardiovascular Clinical Research Facility at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
