Dr. Alexander is a Vascular Cell Biologist and a Principal Investigator in the Cardiovascular Research Group in the University of Manchester. An extract of her synopsis is given below

 “Despite improvements in pharmaceutical treatments and interventional surgery, disease of the heart and blood vessels accounts for almost 191,000 deaths per year (1 in 3 people), making it the number 1 killer in the western world…This evening is designed to inform you about this cutting edge research and also state-of–the-art technological advances in the stem cell field which could change the face of heart and vascular disease in the future.”
