Professor Nick Morrell (2013) has been awarded the John Vane Medal by the William Harvey Research Institute at Queen Mary University of London. The award is presented annually to celebrate outstanding achievement linked to the Nobel Prize-winning research interests of the late Sir John Vane.

In addition to being a Fellow of St Catharine’s, Professor Morrell is the British Heart Foundation Professor of Cardiopulmonary Medicine at the University of Cambridge’s School of Clinical Medicine. He is a clinician scientist and Director of the new Cambridge Heart and Lung Research Institute.

His award was presented during the William Harvey Research Institute’s Annual Research Review, which this year was hosted online on 24 June. Accepting the award, Professor Morrell spoke about how his research has leveraged clues from human genetics to advance the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension.
