Latest Professorial Inaugural Lectures explore cardiovascular research

Academics from the University's Department of Cardiovascular Sciences will discuss their research in the latest Professorial Inaugural Lectures taking place on Tuesday 2 May.

Professor Matt Bown will give the first lecture, titled ‘Strength in numbers: lessons from large-scale research in vascular surgery’.

Professor Bown’s talk will focus on the use of large scale research projects to identify what causes aneurysms and how the findings from this research might change the way we care for people with aneurysms in the future.

Professor Shu Ye will follow Professor Bown with his lecture titled, ‘Heart disease: is it in our genes?’.

Professor Ye will discuss his research into genetic factors that predispose individuals to the disease and the molecular mechanisms underlying their pathological effects.
