Angela Hoye

Post Nominals MB ChB, PhD
Biography Angela Hoye qualified in medicine at the University of Sheffield in 1993. She undertook Specialist Registrar training in Cardiology in East Yorkshire between 1998 and 2005, including a 2-year Interventional Cardiology Fellowship in Thoraxcentre, Rotterdam from 2002-2004. Her PhD was awarded in 2006 from the Erasmus University of Rotterdam following her work on the efficacy of drug-eluting stents for the treatment of complex coronary disease. She was appointed as an NHS Consultant in Hull in 2005 and moved to her current position as a Senior Lecturer in Cardiology in 2010.
Research Interests Dr Hoye`s research interests relate to percutaneous coronary intervention for patients with stable angina as well as acute coronary syndromes. Her research interests are focused in several key areas:

Chronic total occlusions:

Improved clinical assessment of patients with a chronic total coronary occlusion and also evaluation of the development and function of collaterals

Anti-platelet therapy:

In conjunction with Prof Naseem in Biomedical Sciences, she has also started work to evaluate anti-platelet therapy used in clinical practice. This work evaluates platelet function and anti-platelet efficacy in patients with coronary disease who are undergoing coronary stent implantation.

Coronary disease in Women:

Female patients with coronary artery disease tend to have poorer outcomes than their male counterparts, and are often under-represented in clinical trials. Dr Hoye is undertaking clinical research to try to understand some of the mechanisms to explain this apparent disparity.
Teaching and Learning I deliver some of the Phase I cardiology lectures and in addition offer an SSC and SSIP in Interventional Cardiology.
