Cardiovascular development and risk in preterm-born individuals

Adam completed his undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Guelph in Canada. In the final year of his undergraduate, he was awarded a Commonwealth Scholarship to fund his PhD in Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of Oxford. Adam completed his doctoral research in Professor Paul Leeson's group focused on the long-term cardiovascular impact of being born preterm. Adam also completed his postdoctoral research in the Oxford Cardiovascular Clinical Research Facility (CCRF). As part of this, he helped refine the ultrasound imaging protocols for the UK Biobank study and developed studies to build on the findings from his doctoral research. These studies have provided more detailed characterisation of pathways leading to long-term heart changes in preterm-born individuals.

Adam was recently awarded a 5-year British Heart Foundation (BHF) Intermediate Research Fellowship for his work: "Cardiac remodelling in preterm-born offspring: defining the importance of early postnatal changes and potential for neonatal dietary interventions to reduce long-term risk". He is also a College Lecturer in Systems Physiology at St Peter's College, University of Oxford where he leads on the tutorial teaching for undergraduate and graduate-entry medicine for cardiovascular, respiratory and renal physiology.
