About Claire Taylor
Claire’s research interests lie within the field of cardiovascular disease prevention and rehabilitation, specifically the roles of exercise and physical activity in the modification of CVD risk. She previously worked at the University of Hull.
Claire's PhD research examined long-term mortality in patients undergoing exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation, in conjunction with Leeds Teaching Hospitals’ NHS Trust. In addition to her experience working with large observational data within the epidemiological setting, Claire recently worked in a clinical trial team examining short-term outcomes from UK cardiac rehabilitation (Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals' NHS Trust) and has published a clinician's guide to cardiopulmonary exercise testing.
