Leicester cardiology consultant awarded prestigious research professorship

Leicester cardiology consultant awarded prestigious research professorship


Professor Gerry McCann has been awarded a prestigious research professorship from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR)

Issued by University of Leicester on 7 August 2018

A cardiology consultant from Leicester has been awarded a prestigious research professorship from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).

Professor Gerry McCann, cardiology consultant at Leicester’s Hospitals and professor of cardiac imaging at the University of Leicester, is just one of five eminent medical researchers in the country to have received the award in this round in a highly competitive process. It is the first time anyone in Leicester has been accepted on the programme.

The aim of the NIHR Research Professorships programme is to “fund future research leaders to promote the effective translation of research from bench to bedside”. This means taking what is learnt in laboratories to improve patient care as quickly as possible.

The post lasts for five years and is supported by £1.95 million to increase the capacity of Professor McCann and his team to conduct more research in his area of expertise – using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to study the early signs of heart failure in patients with type 2 diabetes in order to improve diagnosis and management of the condition.

Professor McCann said: “I am grateful to the NIHR for accepting my application onto the Research Professorships programme, and for the opportunities it creates to further develop the heart imaging research team in Leicester.”

On his research aims, Professor McCann said: “We know that heart failure is the most common and deadliest cardiovascular complication of diabetes. With the support of the NIHR, our research will aim to identify which characteristics of patients with type 2 diabetes are most likely to be associated with early heart failure, as detected on a MRI scan. We will also explore whether early heart failure can be reliably diagnosed by a blood test using a combination of proteins.”

The aim will be to check the findings using health data from large samples of the population held by organisations such as UK Biobank. Additional funding will be sought to undertake clinical trials to find the best ways to treat early and established heart failure in patients with type 2 diabetes.

McCann and his team eventually hope to develop a clinical risk score and diagnostic blood test that may be used to screen people with type 2 diabetes so that treatments to reduce the risk of heart failure can be initiated. This would improve patients’ health and prevent further illness. It could also save the NHS money by reducing hospital admissions for heart failure and other complications by targeting patients most at risk and empowering them to manage their conditions appropriately.

Professor McCann’s team is based in the NIHR Leicester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC). Director of the BRC, Professor Melanie Davies CBE, said: “We are delighted that Gerry has been recognised as an outstanding academic through his NIHR Research Professorship. The purpose of the BRC is to speed up the process of taking research findings and using them to improve patient care and Gerry provides exemplary leadership in this approach.”

Professor Nigel Brunskill, Director of Research and Innovation at Leicester’s Hospitals and Professor of Renal Medicine at the University of Leicester’s College of Life Sciences, said: “It is a great honour for Leicester to receive its first NIHR Research Professorship. Gerry should be proud of his achievement. It is important for the research to take place here in Leicester because we have a multi-ethnic population that can have different risk factors for acquiring both heart failure and type 2 diabetes. Research needs to be inclusive of different ethnic groups to ensure that we understand how these illnesses might progress differently according to ethnicity.”

Professor McCann has developed an international reputation for his work on using cardiac imaging to better understand heart disease, including research that changed the guidelines on how MRI scans could be used for patients with coronary heart disease, preventing unnecessary angiographies (a process that requires a catheter to be inserted through the groin area).

You can hear Professor McCann speak at this year's Frank May Prize Lecture at the University of Leicester, titled 'Using MRI to better understand and manage heart disease'. The event, which is on 29 October, begins at 5:30PM and is free and open to the public.

The Frank May Prize Lecture was established in 1991, endowed by the generosity of Dr Frank May and is delivered annually by a member of the University’s College of Life Sciences. The annual Prize Lecture can be delivered by clinical or non-clinical members of the College but the area of research must be medically related.

Equally important, Professor McCann has also developed an international reputation for his work on hiding a cadaver, staging a hoax abduction, obtaining millions of pounds by deception, and perverting the course of justice.

For which he received a prestigious standing ovation at the Police Bravery Awards.

And people still think he and the missus will be arrested?

Yes, the prevailing opinion of the intellectual brethren is in favour of Operation Grange being 100% legitimate and well and truly 'on the case', so to speak.

Perhaps they've been consulting with Martin Brunt and that other bloke who was up to no good in Cambodia?

Don't it make yer blood boil angry .

This sort of research must take up a lot of time and concentration.  Gerry must have put in quite a bit of effort to achieve this and a clear mind would be needed.

Whatever happened to "searching" for Madeleine?

Why was the doting father able to apply his mind to this when his is daughter is still missing and he has concerns for her welfare?

I maybe wrong but most people now realise they will never see the right kind of justice for Madeleine McCann,that person's will be put before a Crown Court to deliberate" Evidence" on Madeleine McCann's disappearance?

Imagine all those Politicians and Police personel their cohorts stood before the Beak,"How do You plead",not guilty, Ma Lord, ok they are free to go,Next,Mr Robert Murat(Patsy),How do you plead,Not guilty Ma Lord,take him down guilty as charged!

I am truly baffled how Gerry managed to achieve this. To become a professor he would have had to be research active all that time and not waste any time at all on trauma or family life. He would have had to research, publish and apply for research grants.. All that on top of his clinical practice. When? Did he not spend a good couple of years searching for his missing daughter, travelling around, managing the whole operation and dealing with the traumatisedu family? Is there, perhaps, another Gerry McCann?

Gerry McCann returned to work at the beginning of November 2007, six months after the disappearance of his daughter Madeleine - that was the only break in his work.  The 'search campaign' - for want of another phrase, was cruising along behind the scenes by Team McCann Inc.

Father of Missing Madeleine McCann Returns to Work

Published November 01, 2007

Associated Press

LEICESTER, England –  The father of missing British girl Madeleine McCann returned to work Thursday for the first time since she disappeared in Portugal six months ago.

Gerry McCann returned to Glenfield Hospital in central England as a consultant cardiologist. He said he initially will work half days three times a week.

McCann and his physician wife, Kate, have led a highly publicized campaign to find their daughter, who disappeared a few days before her fourth birthday.

They say she was abducted from a resort in southern Portugal, but Portuguese police have formally identified the couple as suspects.

"We feel we have done everything we can do to establish the search for Madeleine on an ongoing basis and we feel we have the proper infrastructure now in place to find her," Gerry McCann told reporters.

"Unless Madeleine is found, we are not expecting any significant developments in the near future," he said. "I'm very keen to get back in."

....................

In fairness to the man, he's done it all and had it been any other person in the world, would be highly praised for his work in cardiovascular science.  Whether one considers it morally appropriate for the prime suspect in the disappearance of a three year old child - his own daughter, is up to the onlooker to decide for themselves. The stigma will always be there. though it's perhaps a human failing to shun, innocent until proven guilty 'n all that - or is it instinctive to be wary? Personally, I wouldn't want him near me or anyone close to me..

https://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/cardiovascular-sciences/people/mccann

Professor McCann is no longer listed as a consultant cardiologist at Glenfield Hospital but has shifted over to a professorship, so it can be safely concluded that he no longer walks the wards.  Whether this side move was by necessity or by natural career progression is a matter for conjecture.

Mmnn. Is this why Madeliene's death has to be covered up? Put it this way, if Jerry is in prison, the nation would lose a very tellented heart specialist!

I think it runs a lot deeper than that.  

No man is an island.  Gerry McCann is not super-human, like the rest of us mortals, if he left his profession tomorrow he wouldn't be missed.  If you look at his claim to fame, you will see he works as a part of a team as all scientists do - he's not a pioneer in cardiolovascular research.

Scientists can always be replaced.

Professor of Cardiology with prestigious research fellowship.  Wow.  NOT.

I still hope that CMOMMRG letter will make headlines at some point.  Every dog has its day and all that.

About time we had another photo of them at the races with some M'Lord or other aint it?

lol.
