Professor Albert Ferro studied Medicine at King’s College London (1978-1984), obtaining a 1st Class Honours intercalated BSc degree in Biochemistry in 1981 along the way. After qualifying, and following training as a junior doctor in medicine, he did his PhD in Clinical Pharmacology at Cambridge University.

Since that time, his research and clinical interest have both focussed on the prevention and treatment of heart disease. He has published over 100 research papers on the subject of cardiovascular disease, and his contribution to research in the field has been recognised by the award of a number of prizes internationally. He has been a Consultant Physician at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals since 1996, and was appointed Professor in 2009.

He is a fellow of the British Pharmacological Society and member of the British Hypertension Society, European Society of Hypertension and the Association of Physicians of Great Britain & Ireland. He serves on the Editorial Boards of several medical and cardiovascular scientific journals. He provides a General (Internal) Medicine service to Guy’s and St Thomas’, and runs the Hypertension Clinic there. He is an accredited hypertension specialist with the European Society of Hypertension.
