Cardiovascular research delivered at 2019 Hunterian Lectures
19 Dec 2019
We annually invite applications from members and fellows to be given the honour of presenting a Hunterian Lecture, and since it was established in 1810 some of the most influential names in British surgery have presented. By tradition, the Hunterian Lectures have a strong flavour of clinical investigation, backed up with good science and evidence.
One of the 2019 lectures, entitled ‘Morphological, biomechanical and functional assessment of atherosclerosis with magnetic resonance imaging’, was delivered by Dr Umar Sadat at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Vascular Society of Great Britain and Ireland.
Dr Sadat was awarded his Hunterian medal by RCS Vice President Professor Cliff Shearman. His research brings together diverse fields of cardiovascular medicine, MR physics, radiology and vascular surgery to develop these techniques, with a team of collaborators and co-investigators at the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.
