Incoming Chair, Albert Ferro said “I feel very honoured that the Cardiovascular Research Trust have appointed me as their Chair. Prevention of cardiovascular disease is central to the Trust’s mission, and this has also very much been my lifelong passion and the driving force behind my clinical and academic work over the last 30 years. I look forward to leading the Trust and promoting our work and our messages to wider audiences.”
