Heart centre opens

One of the most advanced regional cardiac care units in Europe has been officially opened by Major-General Leslie Busk, director-general of the British Heart Foundation. The BHF Research centre at LGI houses several research projects led by academics from the University, including the world’s largest study into family heart disease (see feature in Reporter 461).

"It is a measure of our confidence in Leeds as a centre of excellence that the BHF has progressively increased its funding of the research carried out here," said Major Busk. The BHF has invested over £9.7m in the centre over the last two years.
