Cardiovascular disease, Atherosclerosis and ischaemic heart disease , and critically evaluate the advances/progress in treatment for the disease in the past 10 years. In your submission you must include a minimum of 10 references from appropriate and academically robust sources. You may cover treatment advances from bench work up to and including clinical trials and that may now be in clinical use. You must establish the burden of the disease and the need for research into its treatment. You must give your work an appropriate title as the heading of the document (in Microsoft word)
The word limit (not the word target) is 1500 words, there is no +10% on this, but anything reasonably below (i.e. more than 1200) is fine. References will not count towards the word limit, but citations will. Figure legends will not, nor will your title.
Figures are permitted provided they are referenced, and they must be relevant to the question and have purpose (i.e) not there for the sake of it or to beef things out/make them pretty. It is advisable in any introduction you include, that you give an overview of the disease (brief presentation, detrimental effects, and of course the pathophysiology) rather than delving into “Current treatments for disease x are…” to demonstrate you understand the principles of what makes the disease tick, why it’s important that there is current research, and ultimately why current trends in research in it are targeting whatever aspect (biomarker, medicinal, gene therapy etc)is is that becomes the thrust of your evaluation of where we are with treating that disease.
