Heart research takes centre stage at the Science Museum

Science Museum's Lates with MastercardThis month you get the chance to investigate the inner workings of the heart at the Science Museum Lates event on Wednesday 27 February.

Part of the ever popular Lates with Mastercard series, this heartwarming event will be called Mending Broken Hearts, and will let visitors explore the science behind the fight against heart disease.

Come along to the event and you will get to hear about the science that could help the heart repair itself, see the incredible history of cardiology and heart surgery, and you could even get to learn vital emergency life-saving skills.

Where and when?

This free event will be at the Science Museum in London on Wednesday 27 February from 6.45pm to 10pm. It's adults only, so it's also a great chance to get a look in on some of the Museum’s fun interactive exhibits!

BHF Professor of Regenerative Medicine Paul Riley will be talking about his amazing work to mend broken hearts, and BHF Professor of Cardiac Surgery Gianni Angelini will be in a mock-up operating theatre answering your questions about heart surgery. Finally, we’ll be learning how animals can teach us how to repair hearts damaged by heart attacks.

How do I get a ticket?

There’s no need to buy a ticket or even reserve a space, just come along to the Science Museum for a heart-warming evening! Get there early to avoid the queues.

You can also follow the event on Twitter via #smlates.
