Funding for New COVID19 Study

We would like to congratulate Professor Sandosh Padmanabhan and his team on the successful Heart Research UK grant award of £250,000 for a brand new study which will explore the effects of Covid19 on blood vessels and blood pressure. 

This study aims to answer whether:

  • High blood pressure makes COVID-19 infection worse and if so, why.
  • COVID-19 infection makes high blood pressure worse and if so, why.
  • Monitoring and management of high blood pressure needs to be a greater priority during the pandemic.
