Dr Denise Braganza, born in Manchester, studied medicine at the University of Bristol, graduating in 1994. During her undergraduate years, she obtained a B.Sc. in Biochemistry and later went on to undertake a further period of research into the role of statins in plaque composition, funded by a Medical Research Council Fellowship and was awarded a PhD for this work by the University of Cambridge in 2006. She undertook postgraduate medical training initially in the South West of England before moving to Cambridgeshire for her SHO and registrar rotations. Following an interventional training fellowship at the Hôpital Europeén Georges Pompidou in Paris, Dr Braganza took up a Consultant position based jointly at Papworth and Peterborough Hospitals in 2008.
She is dually accredited in General Medicine and in Cardiology and as such her work embraces general cardiology (including rapid access chest pain assessment, palpitations, heart failure, cardiac assessment of renal transplantion candidates, murmurs and valvular heart disease) as well as sub-specialising in coronary intervention (angioplasty/stenting and the use of IVUS/pressure wire/OCT techniques to assess the clinical significance of angiographically-detected narrowings). She undertakes angioplasty procedures both radially and femorally.
Dr Braganza is the Training Programme Director for cardiology registrars in the East of England and is medical director for Advanced Life Support Resuscitation courses,
