Congratulations Chris Denning

We would like to congratulate our collaborator Chris Denning for completing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge in aid of Heart research UK, the charity who awarded a grant for his research.

Chris works in the Centre of Biomolecular Sciences at the University of Nottingham, and has been carrying out a two-year project into the treatment of abnormal heart rhythms. The 26 miles of jogging and hiking he went through were worth it since he raised more than £2.500.

If you would like to support Heart Research UK there is still time to donate.
