Professor Dweck's research has focused on the use of multi-modality imaging (echocardiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonancepositron emission tomography) to better understand a range of cardiovascular conditions, including atherosclerosis, aortic stenosis, cardiomyopathy & most recently COVID-19. 

He has published more than 230 manuscripts (H-index 42) & is the recipient of numerous scientific awards (e.g. Michael Davies Early Career Award, British Cardiovascular Society; Sir Jules Thorn Award for Biomedical Research; British Heart Foundation Outstanding Investigator Award). 

Professor Dweck is the Chief Investigator of two ongoing randomised controlled trials investigating novel therapeutic strategies in aortic stenosis (SALTIRE 2 NCT02132026 & EVOLVED NCT03094143) & an investigator on the SCOTHEART, SCOTHEART 2PREFFIR trials in coronary atherosclerosis. 

 

We asked Marc how he felt about his newly appointed professorship.

"I am absolutely delighted to become a Professor at the University of Edinburgh.

It feels like a long journey since my first day as a medical student in the Anatomy lecture theatre at the old medical school here.

Along the way I have been very fortunate to learn from some truly outstanding people within the University & in the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, as well as friends & collaborators around the world.

I am also particularly lucky to have had access to a wide range of cutting-edge imaging technologies that have allowed me to investigate the clinical questions I find most interesting, with the best suited & most sophisticated equipment available.

I am really looking forward to my inaugural lecture, perhaps back in the anatomy lecture theatre, as soon as the COVID-19 pandemic allows ."

 

As of yet there is no scheduled date for Prof Marc Dweck's inaugural lecture.
