Congratulations to Associate Professor Lisa Heather, who has been awarded the 2024 International Society for Heart Research (ISHR) Outstanding Investigator Award.

The purpose of this Award is to recognize an outstanding scientist who is making major and independent contributions to the advancement of cardiovascular science, and leading a growing research program likely to play a significant role in the future. The main criteria for selecting awardees are scientific excellence, independence, and potential for future research contributions.

Lisa’s research revolves around metabolism and the heart – understanding why metabolism is important and what the consequences are when it goes wrong. In 2018 she was awarded a British Heart Foundation Intermediate Fellowship, to study why fat accumulation in the type 2 diabetic heart is such a bad thing

Lisa will be giving her award lecture at the ISHR-ES Conference in Toulouse in June. Joining her there will be DPAG colleague Samira Lakhal-Littleton. More conference details below.
