The Editorial Office of Cardiovascular Research, the premier journal of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) for basic and translational science, is based within the BHF GCRC. This year, the impact factor of the Journal rose to 7.014! Senior Managing Editor of Cardiovascular Research, Heather Small, was awarded an internationally competitive grant from the ESC to attend the Women Transforming Leadership Programme at the recent ESC Congress in Paris. This executive education programme is run by the Saïd Business School of the University of Oxford and took place between 7-11 October 2019.

The course focuses on different ways of dealing with organisational challenges and provides women with tools for finding their own leadership style. The course was attended by 56 women from diverse backgrounds including diplomats, CEOs, entrepreneurs and clinicians. Heather thoroughly enjoyed the course and is looking forward to channelling the experience gained into further driving the success of the Journal and the ESC Journal family.
