Dr Renata Gomes, Heart Scientist, King's College London

Renata became a researcher in cardiovascular science against the odds, moving to the UK from a remote village in Portugal and battling cancer on the way. Fascinated by heart disease and novel technologies, she drew on a piece of napkin an idea to use nanotechnology to Mend Broken Hearts. This technology is now a European and World Patent and is under examination to be taken into clinical trials by pharmaceutical companies for use in hospitals. For a patient this will mean less treatment, less medication and improved quality of life. “Women are great leaders and amazing scientists with a different vision and approach that tends to really change paradigms.”
