DPAG Postdoctoral Research Scientist Dr Xin Sun has been shortlisted in the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) annual ‘Reflections of Research’ image competition.

Reducing fat in the diabetic heart could improve recovery from heart attack

CRE Research

New research from the Heather Group has shown that in type 2 diabetes an overload of lipids reduces the heart’s ability to generate energy during a heart attack, decreasing chances of recovery.

High blood sugar levels ‘reprogramme’ stem cells

Research

Findings explain higher risk of heart attack in people with diabetes, even after treatment .

Critical six-week window to ‘reset’ blood pressure after giving birth

CRE Research

Home blood pressure monitors could help mothers significantly lower high blood pressure after pregnancy

Iron deficiency anaemia in early pregnancy increases risk of heart defects, suggests new research

CRM Research

In animal models, iron deficient mothers have a greatly increased risk of having offspring with congenital heart disease (CHD). The risk of CHD can be greatly reduced if the mother is given iron supplements very early in pregnancy. Additionally, embryos from a mouse model of Down Syndrome were particularly vulnerable to the effects of maternal iron deficiency, leading to a higher risk of developing severe heart defects.

Filipa Simões – A Seat at the Table

Intermediate Transition Research Fellow Dr Filipa Simões from The Riley Group has been interviewed by the British Heart Foundation for the BHF Alumni website, where she discusses her research career, being a woman in science and supporting underrepresented students.

Having a healthier heart associated with better problem-solving and reaction time

CRE Publication

People with healthier heart structure and function appear to have better cognitive abilities, including increased capacity to solve logic problems and faster reaction times, according to a study involving University of Oxford and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) researchers.

Study provides new insights into causal mechanisms for atrial fibrillation

CRE Publication

A large-scale genetic study, led by Oxford BHF researchers Dr Parag Gajendragadkar, clinical DPhil student, Professor Barbara Casadei and Professor Jemma Hopewell, has shed new light on common heart rhythm disturbances

New target identified to develop treatment for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

Genetic breakthrough to target care for deadly heart condition

CRE Research

Professor Watkins and his team have found a new type of genetic change in the DNA of people with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) - a silent killer amongst families that can cause sudden death in young people due to the thickening of the heart muscle.

Earliest origins of the forming heart identified

CRE Research

The earliest known progenitor of the outermost layer of the heart has been characterised for the first time and linked to the development of other critical cell types in the developing heart in a new paper from the Srinivas group led by BHF Immediate Fellow Dr Richard Tyser.
