University of Oxford, Oxford (United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland)
Adam was awarded a Commonwealth Scholarship to fund his PhD in Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of Oxford beginning in 2009. He completed his doctoral research focused on the long-term cardiovascular impact of being born preterm. Adam also completed his postdoctoral research in the Oxford Cardiovascular Clinical Research Facility (CCRF). As part of this, he helped refine the ultrasound imaging protocols for the UK Biobank study and developed studies to build on the findings from his doctoral research. These studies have provided more detailed characterisation of pathways leading to long-term heart changes in preterm-born individuals.
Adam was recently awarded a 5-year British Heart Foundation (BHF) Intermediate Research Fellowship for his work: "Cardiac remodelling in preterm-born offspring: defining the importance of early postnatal changes and potential for neonatal dietary interventions to reduce long-term risk".
