    Miss Rudarakanchana was appointed as a NIHR Clinical Lecturer in 2011 at Imperial College, where her research interests included endovascular skills training using immersive virtual reality simulation, optimization of endovascular surgery through procedure rehearsal, the use of cerebral embolic protection devices during endovascular aortic repair, and the metabonomics of aortic disease. She is currently investigating the use of personalised nutrigenomics to reduce cardiovascular risk. She has published extensively in the field and is regularly invited to lecture at prestigious international conferences. She is an invited reviewer for the British Journal of Surgery and the European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery Her research has generated half a million pounds in grants and won prizes in the UK, Europe and the USA.
