I have recently been appointed by the Royal College of Surgeons of England as the lead for cardiothoracic research in the UK. In 2010 I was elected President of the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery in Great Britain. Most recently I have been part of the collaborative effort that has brought about the ESC/EACTS joint guidelines on Myocardial Revascularisation.
