He is renowned for his work as a specialist in all forms of blood pressure disorders, and has been involved in a number of key clinical studies of device-based therapies for these conditions.

His group has been involved in novel treatments (some first in man) to help patients with these diagnoses. To assist with the diagnosis and management of complex circulatory conditions, he set up the Barts Autonomic Laboratory in 2012 staffed with experts in neurophysiology and haemodynamics.

Professor Lobo is director of the renowned Bart's Blood Pressure Clinic in London, which has been recognised as a Hypertension Centre of Excellence by the European Society of Hypertension.
