ESC FCI grant Singapore Emma Louise Robinson

Dr Emma Louise Robinson (Cardiology, Prof dr Stephane Heymans) received a European Society of Cardiology First Contact Initiative grant to work as a visiting researcher in the laboratory of Prof dr Roger SY Foo at the prestigious Genome Institute Singapore and University of Singapore.

There, she will initially be trained in specialist molecular biology methods and bioinformatics tools to identify and measure the recently-discovered circular RNAs. The grant will be used to kick-start a new long-term ambitious collaborative project to identify novel circulating biomarkers and molecular mechanisms inciting delayed onset chemotherapy-associated dilated cardiomyopathy.'
