Cambridge Cardiovascular


 Big Biology Day

The Cambridge Big Biology Day takes place every October at Hills Road Sixth Form College, and is open to people of all ages with an interest in Biology and Science. We attend to meet and hopefully inspire the next generation of researchers. Please contact Jane Sugars or Denise Hatherly if you would like to volunteer.

A big thank you to Deeti Shetty from the Sinha Lab and Jack Palmer currently on rotation at the Wellcome Sanger Institute for their help this year.


Cambridge Festival

Each year we take part in the Cambridge Festival.

The Festival provides a space where we can highlight the interdisciplinary approach to research for which Cambridge is renowned, and give us all the time to develop collaborative activity with community groups, special interest groups and creative professionals and explore different formats for engagement. Contact Jane Sugars or Denise Hatherly if you would like to get involved.

Once bookings are open you can see all events on the Cambridge Festival website and you can also keep an eye on the Cambridge Festival Twitter page for updates and news.


Videos from our Researchers

Dr Sanjay Sinha introduces us to the development of 'cardiac patches'. The project aims to grow human heart muscle tissue in the lab to replace injured tissue after a heart attack, and is one of the flagship projects of the BHF Centre of Regenerative Medicine. The work is an interdisciplinary collaboration with Prof Ruth Cameron and Prof Serena Best in Materials Science, Prof Richard Farndale in Biochemistry, and Dr Thomas Krieg in Experimental Medicine:


To complement the story about cardiac patches, Cambridge Centre for Medical Materials co-led by Prof Ruth Cameron and Prof Serena Best have published a short introduction to their research, especially around the use of collagen scaffolds to direct cell growth:


NIHR Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre has published a short introduction to cardiovascular and respiratory disease research featuring Prof Nick Morrell:


In 2017, the University of Cambridge published a compilation of "The Future of Medicine", including a clip about the development of cardiac patches by Dr Sanjay Sinha and colleagues:

In 2015, the British Heart Foundation awarded Dr Geoff Moggridge a special project grant to test new heart valve material that may revolutionise valve replacements in humans:

In 2014, the British Heart Foundation interviewed Dr Sanjay Sinha, Dr Alessandra Granata and Dr Johannes Bargehr about ground-breaking cardiovascular research done in Cambridge:

There is also a longer version of this video including personal stories shared by patients:
