BHF Professor of Cardiopulmonary Medicine

Professor Nick Morrell is Director of Studies in Clinical Medicine. He is the British Heart Foundation Professor of Cardiopulmonary Medicine, in the Department of Medicine at the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine and the Research Director of the National Pulmonary Hypertension service at Papworth Hospital. He runs a research laboratory in the Department of Medicine at Addenbrooke's Hospital studying the genetics and molecular basis of rare but important cardiovascular diseases, particularly pulmonary arterial hypertension, and is developing new treatments for these conditions.
