Nicholas Cheshire is Professor of Vascular Surgery and Head of Circulation and Renal Sciences at Imperial College London and head of Vascular Surgery at Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust.

His areas of interest include lower limb disorders, vascular, venous and carotid surgery, coronary stenting and aneurysms. He is also focused clinically, and in research, on the application of technology to complex arterial disease. He has pioneered stent graft repair of thoracic and thoraco-abdominal aneurysms in the UK, reducing peri-operative mortality by up to 50%. With colleagues in bio-engineering at Imperial, the team have developed a novel helical stent and helical prosthetic arterial graft, which is less susceptible to kinking and fracture and has advantageous fluid mechanical properties. The Imperial Vascular Unit's simulation program includes a system that allows mission rehearsal prior to carotid stenting and a fully functional simulated cath-lab suite, the first of its kind. This expertise has been translated into VR teaching programmes in New York and London.

His other award-winning research includes robotically controlled endovascular intervention, showing improved control and easy learning for inexperienced surgeons and combined fluoro-CT endovascular navigation.

Professor Cheshire is a founder member of the British Society for Endovascular Therapy and a former council member of the Society of Academic & Research Surgeons and the Vascular Society.
