This highly prestigious prize, awarded at its Annual Conference by the British Cardiovascular Society, recognises Prof. Lambiase’s outstanding contribution to cardiovascular medicine.

The Award acknowledges clinical and non-clinical researchers who have recently established themselves as independent investigators, conducting ground-breaking research. Dean Prof. Graham Hart commented “…this is superb news for Pier and the Institute. I am especially pleased with Pier’s success in gaining this award, as I understand he was up against some very stiff competition”
