Professor Gemma Figtree
Professor Gemma Figtree and her team have identified a dramatic rise in people presenting at hospital with heart attacks who have none of the traditional modifiable risk factors for heart disease. Thank you for supporting Professor Figtree and her team discover why plaque is building-up in the arteries of seemingly healthy people so a screening process can be developed.
Dr Usaid Allahwala
Dr Usaid Allahwala is investigating why certain patients can grow new arteries as well as researching the impacts of these outcomes. Thank you for helping lead Dr Allahwala to future treatment options for patients in whom stenting or bypass surgery is not possible.
Professor Martin Ugander
Heart failure affects about 2% of all adults and 6-10% of people over 65 years of age. This equates to a large patient group, an enormous burden of hospitalisation, and premature death. Thank you for supporting Professor Ugander develop a cardiovascular MRI that will lead to earlier detection, evaluation of a new treatment, and decreased mortality from heart failure.
