On May 11 we hosted the first CRY Family Research Day, giving some of our supporters a chance to learn more about the massive impact of our research.
Dr Sabiha Gati described what it means to be a CRY Research Fellow. She shared what her time with CRY involved, from serving as a specialist at over 80 screenings throughout the UK to reviewing referrals in CRY clinics (primarily inherited cardiac diseases at University Hospital Lewisham). Dr Gati’s research focused on the structural changes within young, exercising individuals’ hearts. The study garnered worldwide interest and Dr Gati went on to receive a host of prizes. Since completing her time as a CRY Research Fellow, Dr Gati has moved on to become a successful consultant cardiologist. She has also started an educational training programme for GPs throughout the UK as a new initiative under CRY, which trains GPs how to better analyse abnormal ECGs for young individuals. With her impactful research and the work she has continued since, Dr Gati is a fantastic example of how valuable our Research Fellows are.
