Cambridge Cardiovascular


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. The festival also gives us the time to develop collaborative activity with community groups, special interest groups and creative professionals all exploring different formats for engagement. Contact Jane Sugars or Denise Hatherly if you would like to get involved.

You can see all events and make bookings on the Cambridge Festival website. Updates and latest news can be found on the Cambridge Festival Twitter page.

Cambridge Cardiovascular event for 2024:



Have you heard of PRE-ECLAMPSIA? Do you know about the link between this pregnancy complication and longer-term cardiovascular health? Join us at our pop-up café to familiarise yourself with what everyone planning pregnancy and those interested in women’s health should know.

Pre-eclampsia and other placental conditions are life threatening and affect one in 10 pregnancies! They can lead to serious health issues for both mother and baby and increase a woman’s risk of developing heart disease and diabetes later in life, compared with those who have a healthy pregnancy.

Researchers from Cambridge Cardiovascular will share information about conditions that may influence women’s future health. You will have a chance to hear stories from those who have experienced pre-eclampsia and find out how it affected them. If you have experienced pregnancy complications and have questions about your own cardiovascular health, come along to chat to us in a safe and supportive space.

While you’re with us you can learn about the POPPY study, the largest study of its kind and being led by the University of Cambridge. The POPPY study is recruiting women planning their first pregnancy and aims to understand more about placental conditions and how these affect women’s long-term health. More information

Visitors to the stand may also have their blood pressure measured and receive advice about home blood pressure monitoring. No booking necessary.

16 March 2024, at the Big Biomedical Campus day at the Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology (CAST) Robinson Way, Cambridge CB2 0SZ
