We were pleased to attend the launch of the Liverpool Centre for Cardiovascular Science (LCCS). Former Liverpool Football Club manager Gérard Houllier came to Liverpool to help launch the new collaborative research initiative to improve the heart health of the Liverpool City Region. The LABB group is excited about potential opportunities that will arise through LCCS and the difference that we can make to cardiovascular science through this new initiative.
