Department of Cardiovascular Sciences repeats last year’s success.

Congratulations to Dr Andrew Vanezis whose research has won the EMESP Prize, making it two in a row for our Department of Cardiovascular Sciences.

EMESP is East Midlands Engineering and Science Professionals, the body which represents the engineering and science professions in the region to local and regional government, the public, the media, and potential members of the profession including young people and others in education. Each year EMESP presents an award - £500 and an engraved tankard – to a postgraduate researcher in one of the East Midlands’ universities.

In 2011 the EMESP Prize was awarded to Will Nicholson who developed an electrical ‘LifeMap’ which can warn of the risk of sudden cardiac death. And this year the prize has gone to Andrew for his research into how pressure on blood vessels can have benefits for heart attack patients.

A full report on Andrew’s research is on our Graduate School website.
