We would like to introduce Professor Francesco Torella who has joined the LABB team and is now actively involved in our research efforts.

Francesco was appointed Consultant vascular/endovascular surgeon in 2003. He works at the Liverpool University Hospitals and at the Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital. He studied in Italy, Belgium and the United Kingdom and qualified in Medicine in 1992. He became a Fellow of the Royal College of surgeons of England in 1997 and subsequently trained in general/vascular surgery in Merseyside and Manchester. He was awarded his Doctor of Medicine postgraduate degree in Manchester with the thesis “Development and Evaluation of a Blood Transfusion Trigger by Near Infrared Spectroscopy”. He is a founding member of the Liverpool Cardiovascular Service, in which cardiac and vascular surgeons combine their skills to deliver treatment to patients with complex aortic disease. He has a research interest in aortic disease, as it can be seen from his numerous publications (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/?term=torella%20f&sort=date&page=2; https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/mathematical-sciences/staff/francesco-torella/publications/). He is an advisor to the Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) on aortic endoprostheses. He has been an invited speaker at national and international meetings and learned societies on topics related to aortic disease, most recently the Vascular Society of Great Britain & Ireland, Royal College of Anaesthetists, Multidisciplinary European Endovascular Meeting, Perspectives in Vascular Surgery, Critical Issues in Aortic Endografting.



Congratulations to Phakakorn Panpho who passed her PhD viva today. Her PhD title was “Biomechanics and biochemistry of the aorta in chronic aortic dissection” and her examiners were Prof. Aung Oo (External examiner, Cardiovascular Surgery Clinical Lead for Aortovascular Surgery at The Barts Heart Centre) and Dr Jude Curran (Internal Examiner).

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.
