Find out about how stem cell therapy research is helping to mend damaged hearts.


Heart disease remains a leading cause of death. Survival after a heart attack has improved recently but has resulted in more people living with cardiac damage which may progress to heart failure. Professor Carolyn Carr will give a lecture about how stem cell therapy could replace scar tissue and improve heart function.

Professor Carr was originally a chemist, doing her undergraduate degree and DPhil at the University of Oxford. She worked with Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy and mass spectrometry within Oxford, and for Kodak Ltd and Synaptica Ltd. She is currently at the University of Oxford researching cardiac physiology and metabolism, focussing on stem cells in cell therapy and for testing of potential new drugs.
