July 20th, 2020 – British Heart Foundation Features Hatter Cardiovascular Institute Clinical Research Fellow for COVID-19 Contribution

In the recent issue of the British Heart Foundation publication, The Pulse, Dr Mohammed Shah was highlighted for his contribution to clinical care during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr Shah is a BHF-funded Clinical Research Fellow completing his PhD at the Hatter Cardiovascular Institute, under the supervision of Prof Yellon, investigating the relevance of inflammation in acute myocardial infarction and sepsis.  However, when the COVID-19 pandemic struck the UK, Dr Shah stopped his research and headed back to clinical duties at East Kent University Hospital where he led a team of junior doctors.

His experience as a cardiologist was beneficial as existing cardiovascular conditions present additional risk to COVID-19 patients and further, his research in inflammation was valuable in the current COVID-19 setting. Dr Shah looks forward to continuing on with his research once the COVID-19 situation begins to stablise and is grateful to the BHF for their continued support at this time.
