The Oxford BHF CRE annual research symposium creates an opportunity for cardiovascular researchers from across the basic, clinical and population sciences to meet and share ideas and opportunities for research and collaborations.

On 3rd November 2020 we are holding a "virtual" half day event of short talks to showcase research currently taking place across the four research themes of the Oxford CRE.
