Young researcher improving coronary artery disease treatment

  • 20 Nov 2017

Dr Susann Beier is a Research Fellow at the University of Auckland. Her research to improve our understanding of and develop treatments for cardiovascular stenting is an AMRF Success Story, with life saving improvements to treatments for the world’s largest health killer: coronary artery disease.

The AMRF is pleased to support Dr Beier’s research with a project award, “Improving Stenting Outcomes”.

Patient lives are on the line. 8% of stents fail – one size does not fit all. We are accounting for the individual patient differences in order to personalise the treatment approach. This AMRF funding will be of tremendous value.
