The new University of Leicester British Heart Foundation Cardiovascular Research Centre (CRC) was officially opened by Vice-Chancellor Professor Sir Robert Burgess earlier this week.

The state-of-the-art heart research facility at Glenfield Hospital will further strengthen and consolidate Leicester’s position as a leading international centre for heart research, thanks to the successful collaboration between the University of Leicester and University Hospitals Leicester.

Film crews were there to capture all the action including BBC, ITV and the Leicester Mercury. Pukaar News also covered the event and their video report can be viewed here.
