On Monday 4th June 2018, Dr Sarah De Val, BHF Senior Fellow and Ludwig Adjunct Scientist, travelled up to Manchester to deliver the John French Lecture at the joint British Atherosclerosis Society (BAS) and British Society for Cardiovascular Research (BSCR) meeting within the British Cardiovascular Society (BCS) meeting.

BAS's annual John French Lecture is named in memory of an outstanding vascular pathologist from the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology here in the University. 

The lecturer is chosen by the Society’s committee after nominations are sought from the membership, and must be a younger scientist of exceptional promise, likely to be beginning to make their mark internationally.

Sarah's research aims to develop novel strategies to modulate vessel growth. This is directly relevant to the ischemic heart, where neovascular growth is insufficient and current strategies to improve this have failed.
