Macintosh Professorships are awarded for one year and recipients are required to deliver a keynote lecture.  Professor Kunst’s inaugural lecture entitled Myocardial Protection by Volatile Anaesthetics – Mirage or Reality?  will take place at the Cardiac Disease and Anaesthesia Symposium 2020.

Professor Kunst’s recent achievements include the consolidation and expansion of clinical trials leadership teams in anaesthesia and perioperative medicine at King's College Hospital (KCH) and across South London in her roles as the anaesthetic research lead at KCH and as the South London NIHR Clinical Research Network Lead. 

This award recognises the excellent opportunities for cross-disciplinary clinical research at KCH and across South London and I feel truly honoured to represent the School of Cardiovascular Medicine & Sciences and KCH as the Royal College of Anaesthetists’ Macintosh Professor.
