The Cardiac, Vascular, and Metabolic Medicine Steering Committee is pleased to announce the recipients of the International Speaker Fellowship. The Steering Committee invited academics affiliated with the theme to submit applications to invite and host an international expert working in the area of Cardiac, Vascular, or Metabolic Medicine to visit UNSW Sydney in Australia.

The CVMM theme is pleased to offer each of these UNSW CVMM researchers $10,000 to support their speakers' travel to Australia. These international speakers will deliver faculty-side, in-person lectures, sharing their cutting-edge insights and experiences with our students and faculty.

While we received many worthy applications to host their research partners from a range of countries, including Sweden, France, Italy, the USA, and the UK, the following three researchers will invite and host their international research partner.

Please stay tuned for the lecture dates.
