January 21st, 2022 – UCLH Cardio-Oncology Service Awarded Gold Centre of Excellence

The UCLH Cardio-Oncology Service has recently been recognised by the International Cardio-Oncology Society as a Gold Centre of Excellence. This is the highest designation possible and is an acknowledgement of the dedication and hard work put in by the team to develop and expand the service. Further, the committee was impressed with the quality improvement projects initiated across UCLH in this emerging area and saw the work to be a guiding example for other healthcare organisations to follow.

Members of the Hatter Cardiovascular Institute – Professor Malcolm Walker, Professor Derek Yellon, Dr Arjun Ghosh, Dr Daniel Chen and nurse Alison Macklin – are all integral parts of this UCLH Cardio-Oncology team and we congratulate them on this distinguished award. We are proud of the research they undertake as part of the HCI which will continue to advance therapies in this important area.

The Hatter Cardiovascular Institute has begun 2022 with an incredible 7 new grant awards!

The awards were announced this week and include 2 Project Grants (British Heart Foundation and Rosetrees Trust) and 5 Research Posts (1 BHF Clinical Fellowship, 3 Wellington-UCL  PhD Clinical Fellowships and 1 UCLH-Charity Post-Doctoral Fellowship). The funding will continue to develop and progress work across all our research areas focussing on protecting the heart & brain from injury.

Funding received from the British Heart Foundation and Rosetrees Trust builds on a strong history of support from these organisations and thus, acknowledges our continued research advancements and we are grateful for their lasting partnership.

The Wellington-UCL Fellowship Programme continues to attract some of the brightest clinical academics from across the UK to both the Hatter Cardiovascular Institute and UCL as a whole. We look forward to welcoming the new Fellows to our dynamic team and supporting them in developing their research careers.
