Members of our department have excelled in the research poster awards at this year's Oxford BHF Centre of Research Excellence Annual Symposium, held on Thursday 3 October 2019.

The symposium opened with a presentation of the Oxford BHF CRE Research Themes. The discussion set out the research opportunities across the CRE for collaborative working and future research. The day also included a poster-blitz session and talks from researchers across the BHF CRE including illustrations of support from the Centre. The Centre's judges awarded prizes to the best student and non-student posters.

In a new study into the longer-term damage amongst patients recovering from COVID-19, DPAG Research Fellow Dr James Grist of the Tyler Lab has been running a novel scanning technique that shows a dramatic decrease in the ability of the lungs to diffuse gas in to the blood stream after COVID infection. This work may shed light on the problem of breathlessness after COVID infection and help guide us in understanding therapeutic selection and efficacy.
