Dr Stoll’s area of research involves the use of advanced Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance imaging to investigate the pathophysiology of patients with cardiac disease. The research she undertook for her DPhil focused upon the intra-cardiac blood flow in patients with heart failure. Dr Stoll moved from Oxford to the University of Birmingham to expand her research to include patients with congenital heart disease.


  • DPhil 2016
  • PGDipLATHE 2014
  • MRCP 2009
  • BMBCh 2006
  • BA Hons (Cantab) 2003


Dr Stoll completed her undergraduate medical training at the University of Cambridge. For her clinical studies she moved to Oxford where she was awarded a Merit in her final examinations. Dr Stoll became a Cardiology Registrar in 2010 in the Oxford Deanery and subsequently took up a BHF funded Clinical Research Fellowship based at the University of Oxford. Upon completion of her DPhil she moved to Birmingham to become a Clinical Lecturer in order to continue her research whilst also completing her clinical Cardiology Training.

Dr Victoria Stoll and Mr Nigel Drury speak about how their individual research focuses on improving outcomes for children and adults with Congenital Heart Disease.


Dr Stoll’s research interests are currently focused upon using cardiovascular imaging to better understand the pathophysiology of patients with complex congenital heart disease. The aim of this research is to better tailor therapies to treat these patients and improve their outcomes.
