A celebration of past achievements

This event was a celebration of past achievements and also reflected upon the need for substantial further work to advance the management of peripheral vascular disease and identify new effective management approaches, therapies and diagnostics.

The Queensland Research Centre for Peripheral Vascular Disease (QRC-PVD) was established in 2010 as an extension of the James Cook University Vascular Biology Unit which was formed in 2002. A special appreciation evening was held recently to celebrate the achievements of the research team and their supporters. Held at the Centenary Hotel on Saturday the 11th of July the night was a celebration of the QRCPVD research.

The work of the research centre is focused on improving the management of peripheral vascular diseases which are a collection of problems affecting the blood vessels with substantial impact on quality of life and other serious complications. The casual family orientated event was a great success and enjoyed by all.

The night was a celebration of past achievements and also reflected upon the fact that there is much more work to be done to better understand these diseases, and identify new effective management approaches, therapies and diagnostics.
