Canon Medical Systems UK is supporting University of Exeter research by co-funding a PhD studentship to research cardiac function and health and fitness in children with paediatric congenital heart disease.
The aim of the project is to improve the understanding of the interaction between heart diseases and exercise and to improve and refine exercise guidelines for young people with congenital heart disease.
“This collaboration with Canon Medical is essential to further paediatric heart research,” said University of Exeter PhD student Curtis Wadey. “Canon Medical provide the university and our research group with the essential tools, support and financial backing to research children’s heart disease.”
