  • Publication of the journal "Global Cardiology Science & Practice" which publishes research and review articles from invited leaders and opinion makers in the field of cardiovascular research and medicine.
  • Arranging scientific conferences to give scientists and medics the opportunity to present their work, to listen to and interact with senior figures from the scientific community.
  • Holding regular hands-on workshops, focusing on practical techniques in cardiology and cardiac surgery.

The Institute's journal, "Global Cardiology Science and Practice" (ISSN: 23057823) is a fully open access academic journal, founded by the Magdi Yacoub Institute in 2011, and published exclusively by the Institute since 2016.

The journal aims to connect cardiologists around the world with advances in basic science and how this translates into clinical practice. It has a particular focus on research and practice in countries which are not well covered by traditional journals.
