MAHSC Seminar Series: Understanding and treating cardiovascular disease in Greater Manchester
Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC), part of Health Innovation Manchester, brings together world leading academic and NHS partners to drive health research forward.
The MAHSC Seminar Series showcases the great discovery and clinical science being undertaken within Manchester and its impact on the health of the local population.
The series gives a local platform to the nationally and internationally renowned scientists of MAHSC, to share their work with clinical, non-clinical and university colleagues but also crucially members of the wider community seeking insight into innovations in the delivery of healthcare.
This month’s seminar: ‘Understanding and treating cardiovascular disease in Greater Manchester’ was chaired by Professor Bernard Keavney – Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine and a Consultant Cardiologist.
Professor Bernard Keavney said: “Manchester has just about the worst morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular disease in England and it is a profound source of health inequality and in the Academic Health Science Centre we’re doing our very best to turn that around through commitment to our three fold mission of research, training and excellence of clinical practice.”
Dr Christopher Miller – NIHR Clinician Scientist and Consultant Cardiologist and Dr Aneil Malhotra – Consultant Cardiologist and Senior Lecturer joined the seminar to bring their perspectives to the topic: Understanding and treating cardiovascular disease in Greater Manchester.
Dr Christopher Miller presented on ‘CMR (Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance) to connect Cardiovascular biology with drug mechanism of action’.
Dr Aneil Malhotra gave a presentation on ‘Cardiac imaging and sudden cardiac death in athletes’.
Professor Keavney, Dr Miller and Dr Malhotra then answered and discussed a variety of questions about cardiovascular disease in Greater Manchester and in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.
