Come and join us for this one-off amazing live podcast event as part of the Cambridge Festival 2024 – The Live Animal Heartbeat Podcast will be recorded on 26 March at 7.30pm – from the Old Devinity Lecture Theatre, St John’s College, Cambridge.

The Animal Heartbeat is the only podcast dedicated to veterinary cardiology and has almost 17,000 downloads of the first season to date. Join our hosts and veterinary cardiology specialists, Jose Novo Matos from the University of Cambridge Queen’s Veterinary School Hospital and Kieran Borgeat, from Eastcott Veterinary Referrals, Swindon as they delve into the topic of heart surgery in humans and dogs - is it really so different?

At this special live podcast from St John's College Old Divinity Lecture Theatre Cambridge, we will be discussing cutting-edge heart surgery in both species.
Our panel of experts includes:
1. Dr Claudio Bussadori, veterinary cardiologist at the Clinica Veterinaria Gran Sasso in Milan and also human paediatric cardiologist.
2. Dr Poppy Bristow, European specialist in small animal surgery and specialist in canine heart surgery.
3. Mr Ravi J De Silva, consultant cardiothoracic surgeon and lead for aortic surgery from the Royal Papworth Hospital.
4. Dr Rohin Francis, consultant interventional cardiologist at the Essex Cardiothoracic Centre and Clinical Research Fellow at University College London - also a renowned science communicator and creator of the Medlife Crisis YouTube channel.

This will be a relaxed, up-beat discussion about current techniques and future potential of heart surgery cross-species. If you are interested in matters of the heart in either species, are a vet, human doctor, student, or simply interested in learning more about heart surgery in two- and four-legged animals, then this event is for you! @heartbeat_pod @medlifecrisis #cardiology @CamVetSchool
