Dr Lisa Heather's research focuses on the role of abnormal metabolism in the development of cardiac disease in type 2 diabetes. She will be presenting her Group's work addressing why type 2 diabetes decreases survival following a heart attack, and novel approaches to manipulate metabolism in these hearts as a therapeutic strategy for diabetes. These are pressing question given that diabetes is predicted to be a global epidemic by 2050, and the leading cause of mortality in diabetes is heart disease.
