Dr Manisty has a proven track record as a dedicated and experienced clinical and academic cardiologist with a sub-speciality interest in heart failure, cardio-oncology and advanced cardiac imaging. Based at UCLH and Barts Health NHS Trusts, her clinical practice includes all aspects of adult cardiology, but her subspecialist interests are in caring for patients with heart failure or cardiac problems following cancer treatment, and advanced cardiovascular imaging (cardiac MRI and echocardiography). She set up and leads the specialist Cardio-oncology service at Barts Hospital to assess and treat cancer patients with heart problems. She has developed a service for MRI scanning patients with cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators, and Chairs the UK Cardiac Device MRI working group.
She sees patients routinely in clinic for a range of cardiac conditions including heart failure (shortness of breath and ankle swelling), valvular heart disease and heart murmurs, cardiomyopathy (heart muscle disease), myocarditis, angina and coronary artery disease (chest pain), high blood pressure, palpitations and pre-operative risk assessment.
She is recognized by patients for her sound clinical judgment and her conscientious, calm and cheerful approach, and combines her clinical and academic work with raising a family.
Education and Training
Her medical training was undertaken at Oxford University and Imperial College, and she was awarded scholarships at both institutions. She obtained her MRCP in 2004 and then undertook specialist postgraduate training in Cardiology including Fellowships in Cardiac Imaging and Cardiac Devices at Imperial College NHS Trust. During this period she gained formal accreditation in transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography (BSE), cardiac MRI (SCMR level III) and cardiac devices (IBHRE).
She has been elected as a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology.
Dr Manisty was awarded a Wellcome Trust Research Training Fellowship in 2005 for research into cardiopulmonary physiology in heart failure, for which she received a PhD in 2009 from University of London. Following her PhD she was received a prestigious National Institute of Health Research Clinical Lecturership, and conducted research into methods to improve the accuracy of echocardiography and myocardial perfusion cardiac MRI scanning, and has received both National and International awards for her work thus far (Society of Cardiac MRI, British Society of Cardiac MRI, British Hypertension Society, National Heart and Lung Institute and President’s Medal for Cardiology at the Royal Society of Medicine).
She is currently employed as an Associate Professor at University College London, and is leads the academic heart failure program at Barts Heart Centre. Current research interests include optimising imaging using computational techniques for identifying patients at risk of developing cardiotoxicity, and understanding the vascular toxicity of cancer treatments.
She has received over £2 million funding for her work in past 5 years from British Heart Foundation, Barts Charity and the National Institute for Health Research, and supervises PhD students. She is author of over 100 publications and book chapters, and is regularly invited to speak both Nationally and at International conferences.
