Dr Sally Inglis and Dr Phillip Newton from the Centre for Cardiovascular and Chronic Care were elected to FAHA this week, a remarkable recognition by their peers of the value and importance of their work.
UTS Health will be part of an important research project funded by the NSW Cardiovascular Research Network. The $300,000 grant will be used to undertake a Heart Failure Snapshot that will act as a seed for further research in the area.
