Hull wins £870k grant for blood clotting research

Hull York Medical School and the University of Hull have been awarded nearly £870,000 by the British Heart Foundation for research into blood clotting.

The award will fund a five-year project exploring how fat in the blood can affect blood clotting to increase the risk of a heart attack or stroke and will help in the development of new medicines. Hull has a higher-than-average death rate from coronary heart disease than other parts of Yorkshire and England as a whole.
