MP meets outstanding early career researcher at SET For Britain event

Crouch End resident Dr Arjun Ghosh was one of a group of researchers who had their work displayed in Parliament last week. Hornsey and Wood Green MP Lynne Featherstone met with Dr Ghosh to view the poster and to discuss his work.

Dr Ghosh, is a Cardiologist working at St Mary’s Hospital and a researcher at the International Centre for Circulatory Health at Imperial College and at Medical Research Council for Lifelong Health and Ageing. His research focuses on life course effects on cardiac structure and function as measured through echocardiography.

His work was displayed on a poster on the Terrace of the House of Commons as part of the SET for Britain campaign. The overall aim of SET for Britain is to support Britain’s early-stage and early-career research scientists, engineers and technologists. The competition is divided into three categories: engineering, biological and biomedical science and physical sciences. Dr Ghosh’s work was selected for presentation in the biological and biomedical science category from out of over 140 submissions.

Lynne Featherstone MP comments:

“Britain has a fantastic record for producing world-leading research. I was delighted to have the chance to talk to Dr Ghosh about his work. He, and many others like him, are carrying out vital work that will have a real impact on people’s lives.”
