His PhD in metabolic imaging was supervised by Dr Neubauer at the University of Oxford Centre for Clinical Magnetic Resonance Research (OCMR), and he was awarded an AHA Young Investigator Award in 2008. He became a Clinical Lecturer in 2010 and then Consultant Cardiologist and Deputy Clinical Director of OCMR in 2015. He is currently a BHF Intermediate Clinical Research Fellowship awardee and associate professor, receiving the BHF/BCS Michael Davies award in 2019. Outside research, he enjoys spending time with his two children.Download figureDownload PowerPointDr Andrew Apps initially earned a BS in Biochemistry at University College London, through which he developed an initial interest in the metabolic mechanisms implicated in the pathogenesis of cardiac disease. He subsequently earned his MD at Oxford, where he is undertaking his postgraduate cardiology training and his doctoral studies, developing the techniques of hyperpolarized MR and 31P-MRS. His clinical interest is in the management of patients with coronary artery disease, and he aims to translate the above research techniques into improved diagnostic capabilities, and precision therapy delivery within this field.

His hobbies include cheerleading, spending time with friends and family, and traveling with his cat, Oliver. Nathaniel has had to overcome many adversities in his career, including being a first-generation college student and a gay male. Despite these adversities, his dedication and passion for studying cardiovascular disease has propelled him in the field of cardiac contractile regulation. His future goals include becoming a professor in academia and helping those affected by cardiovascular disease.Brain Damage With Heart Failure (p 750)Download figureDownload PowerPointDr Karsten Mueller earned his PhD in mathematics at the Leipzig University in 1996. Supported by the German Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, he spent a year at the Department of Computer Science at Leuven University. Thereafter, Dr Mueller had a research position at the Max Planck Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience in Leipzig and received his postdoctoral lecturer qualification in 2006. Since 2008, he has been working as a senior scientist at the NMR Unit of the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences and became a supernumerary professor at the Leipzig University in 2015.

She is studying in Hubei Province Key Laboratory of Oral and Maxillofacial Development and Regeneration, in the research team of Dr Lili Chen. Her main research interest is exploring the links between circadian clock and oral pathogen-associated systemic diseases and understanding the detailed mechanisms. Her most recent work reveals how a periodontal pathogen accelerates atherosclerosis via a complicated signalling loop. In her free time, she enjoys travelling and spending time with her friends and family.Download figureDownload PowerPointDr Qingming Tang earned his BM and PhD from Huazhong University of Science and Technology. He is currently the office manager of Hubei Province Key Laboratory of Oral and Maxillofacial Development and Regeneration, working at Union Hospital, Tongji Medical College. He presides over two national research projects, a Young Fund from National Natural Science Foundation of China and a Young Elite Scientist Sponsorship Program from the China Association for Science and Technology. As first author, Dr Tang has published manuscript in Adv Sci, Cancer Res, and other journals, linking circadian clock to oral-associated systemic diseases. His next plan is to extend his current study and explore potential therapeutic strategies to resolve atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases. Tang loves spending time with his family and practices meditation.Dll4 Suppresses Transcytosis for Arterial BRB (p 767)Download figureDownload PowerPointDr Jee Myung Yang is a board-certified ophthalmologist specializing in the retina. He earned his MD (BS in Medicine) at Chonnam National University Medical School, South Korea, and completed his residency training in the Department of Ophthalmology there. He completed his PhD in Vascular Biology at the Graduate School of Medical Science and Engineering at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). His study focused on the regulation of CNS endothelial barrier and neurovascular coupling. During his PhD course, he further studied the retinal vascular biology in Dr Akiyoshi Uemura’s laboratory at Nagoya City University, Japan. Currently, he is working as a clinical fellow in the Department of Ophthalmology, Asan Medical Center, South Korea. His research interests are vessel type-specific BRB/BBB regulation and astrocyte-endothelial interaction in the CNS. He plans to establish his own lab studying translational medicine in CNS vascular biology in the near future. Outside the lab, he enjoys playing sports and spending time with his family and friends, including his one-year-old son.High Ca2+ Prevents Viable Mitochondrial Transplantation (p 784)Download figureDownload PowerPointEdoardo Bertero is a PhD candidate in Dr Christoph Maack’s laboratory at the Comprehensive Heart Failure Center (DZHI) in Würzburg, Germany. He earned his MD at the University of Genova, Italy, where he was mentored by Dr Pietro Ameri. His research focuses on the role of mitochondrial dysfunction in heart failure, with a special emphasis on how the processes of excitation-contraction coupling and mitochondrial bioenergetics are intertwined and contribute to disease progression in the heart. In his free time, Edoardo enjoys traveling and is an avid blitz chess player.
