The Hatter Cardiovascular Institute is pleased to congratulate Dr Catherine Wilder on her success in the recent call for Fast Track grants. Competing against many strong applications, Dr Wilder’s project ‘Gasdermin D – a novel target for dual protection against acute and chronic effects of cardiac ischaemia and reperfusion injury in human myocardium?’ was awarded £39,640.
Dr Wilder will use these funds to continue her research in this emerging area of cardiovascular science over the next year with the aim of producing strong pilot data to enable a further application to an external funder for a larger, more strategic award.
The Fast Track scheme is a collaboration between the NIHR University College London Hospitals Biomedical Research Centre and the UCLH Charity.
Congratulations Dr Wilder!
