The Allam Lecture 2017
'Cardiac Imaging: the next decade'
Professor S Richard Underwood MA BM BCh MD FRCP FRCR FESC FACC
Professor of Cardiac Imaging at the National Heart and Lung Institute
Imperial College, London
The Endowed Allam Lecture series has become a prestigious annual HYMS event within the University of Hull and local business community. The 2017 Allam Lecture is, again, kindly sponsored by Dr Assem Allam.
We are very pleased that Professor Richard Underwood, Professor of Cardiac Imaging at the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London, Honorary Consultant, and Director of Nuclear Medicine at Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals, will be joining us to present the keynote lecture this year. Professor Underwood is an expert in non-invasive cardiac imaging, with major clinical and research interests in nuclear cardiology, magnetic resonance, and cardiovascular x-ray computed tomography.
In addition to Professor Underwood's lecture, the afternoon's poster session will showcase the latest biomedical research from the Centre for Cardiovascular and Metabolic Research (CCMR) and provide an opportunity to discuss the work with those involved.
The event will conclude with a ‘have your say' question time session, where members of the audience are invited to direct questions to Professor Underwood and our panel of experts from the fields of Respiratory Medicine, Cardiology and Diabetes and Endocrinology.
We invite members of the public and those considering a career in medicine or biomedical science to attend this free event and learn about some of the exciting and leading research currently being undertaken in Hull. Light refreshments will be available.
Once registered, you will be able to access further event information including an outline programme, University site map, car parking permit and question submission form.
We look forward to seeing you there!
All CCMR and allied staff are invited to submit abstracts for an oral presentation at the 2017 Allam Lecture. We are looking for short presentations (10 minute maximum) from your area of research. For those abstracts not selected for an oral presentation, a poster can be presented in the poster session, which will take place in the Derwent Café. During the poster session, you will be required to stand at your poster, answer questions and discuss your work. Prizes and certificates will be awarded by the panel judges for both oral presentations and posters.
To submit an abstract please complete and return an abstract form to firstname.lastname@example.org. This can be accessed via click here. A completed example abstract is also provided, along with guidelines on poster size and layout. The deadline for abstract submission is Friday 24 March 2017. Please note that that the audience will made up of staff, students and general public alike, so please tailor your abstract accordingly.

The Centre for Cardiovascular and Metabolic Research (CCMR) brings together the expertise of the classic medical disciplines in an integrated and translational research programme and is led by Professor Alyn H Morice.
The aim of the Centre is to exploit our unique combination of research expertise in basic and clinical sciences to produce a cohesive multidisciplinary, translational approach to medical research. Our research focuses on identifying novel biochemical, molecular and cellular mechanisms that contribute to the development of cardio–metabolic diseases and translating these in findings in clinical benefits.
Our basic and clinical scientists have a wide variety or research interests that are grouped into three major areas, cardiorespiratory biology and medicine, diabetes and metabolic health, and haemostasis, thrombosis and inflammation.
The bench to bedside nature of the research is illustrated by the breadth of studies from the molecular pharmacology of novel human cough receptors, to our excellent track record in clinical trials and our leading role in telehealth in chronic disease.
The Daisy Building provides the central hub for translation of research and clinical practice at Castle Hill Hospital in the disciplines of Cardiology and Respiratory Medicine. In the Allam Research Laboratories facilities are located for basic molecular and cellular work linking with our Hull Royal Infirmary laboratories in obesity and vascular disease.
