Australia-Harvard Fellowship Citations for Harvard’s Prof Kathleen Sweadner & Dr Elena Arystarkhova

Harvard’s Prof Kathleen Sweadner & Dr Elena Arystarkhova, 2015 Australia-Harvard Fellows, are presently visiting Australia to work with Prof. Gemma Figtree and her team at the Kolling Institute of Medical Research at the Royal North Shore Hospital. Their work is helping develop a better understanding of how the heart deals with oxidative stress, and has the potential to result in a new approach to treating hypertension.

They were presented with their Australia-Harvard Fellowship Citations this week at the Institute by the Harvard Club Co-President Naomi Flutter and Australia-Harvard Fellowship Program Director Galina Kaseko.
