Sanjay Prasad is Professor of Cardiology at Imperial College and a Consultant Cardiologist based in London. His main interest is trying to work out causes and early diagnostics of heart failure. His Fulbright scholarship was to Harvard between 1991 and 1993. He previously sat on the Fulbright Selection Committee for three years. His ongoing collaborations with the US – including with colleagues he first met in Boston during his Fulbright years – are fundamental to his research work. This has reinforced that the work of the Fulbright Commission is not to foster one or two years of study abroad, but to build strong lasting relations. Sanjay is a committed educator and passionate about fostering mutual understanding.
