Prof Nolan is one of the UK's foremost interventional cardiologists. He trained in London, Leeds and Amsterdam and undertook a MD in Edinburgh while investigating cardiac autonomic function in patients with cardiac disease. Since taking up a post as consultant at UHNM in 1998 he has combined a busy clinical practice in interventional cardiology with an active program of postgraduate education and research.

Prof Nolan's principle research interests relate to heart failure and the use of trans-radial access for coronary intervention. He has established an internationally renowned cardiac research program and publishing a large number of peer reviewed papers including highly cited pivotal studies. His work has stimulated a major change in UK interventional practice with most centres now using radial access for interventional procedures with important benefits for patients.

Prof Nolan has contributed to numerous textbooks and is a regular lecturer at national and international conferences. He has served on the editorial boards of major cardiac journals and is a member of the governing council of the British Cardiovascular Interventional Society.
