The BHF Alliance Awards celebrates members who have shown excellence and innovation in cardiovascular care over the past year. It also celebrates the inspirational work of its members in improving care for patients suffering from or at risk of heart disease.

Haotian has been working at King's College London, one of the largest BHF research centres of excellence since 2013 and has been supported by the BHF as an Allied Health Professionals (AHP) member since 2011.

He was initially funded by BHF project grant for the first three years. During this period, he acted as an Operational Lead for a multicentre paediatric study, and successfully completed his PhD degree.

In 2017 his novel imaging biomarker was awarded by BHF translational award to carry out further validation studies. During the first six months of the award, he has finished a study to examine the prognostic value of this biomarker in patients with aortic stenosis. This paper is currently under review and Dr Gul is hoping this biomarker will benefit patients with moderate to severe aortic stenosis.

I feel really excited about my nomination and hope I will be awarded at the British Cardiovascular Society conference in June. I would also like to thank my supervisor Prof. Chowienczyk for his great support over the past years.

Haotian Gu, Clinical Scientist

Winners will be presented with a trophy and certificate at a ceremony on Tuesday 5 June 2018 at the British Cardiovascular Society Annual Conference 2018 in Manchester.
