An interview with Professor Monaco on being an Oxford-Harrington Scholar and how her research will change cardiovascular healthcare.

Oxford-Harrington Scholar Professor Claudia Monaco talked to OxfordMedSci News on the benefits of the Oxford-Harrington Scholarship Programme and how the Harrington Discovery Institute’s drug development experts are helping her think translationally about her research in order to move her cardiovascular inflammation research from the lab to the clinic.

Her lab at the Kennedy Institute studies inflammation in metabolic diseases such as atherosclerosis by looking at immune cells in blood vessel walls. Atherosclerosis is one of the main causes of cardiovascular disease and a major cause of death worldwide.
