He mentioned that global natural research is looking deep into the heart function which is the study of healthy, unimpaired function of the heart: involving blood flow; myocardium structure; the electrical conduction system of the heart; the cardiac cycle and cardiac output and how these interact and depend on one another.
He also discussed the different operative techniques in thoracic and cardiovascular surgery and stressed the importance of updating expertise and data regarding clinical medicine practices to save patients' lives.
During his three-day visit to An-Najah and An-Najah National Hospital, Prof. Suleiman expressed his admiration with An-Najah's scientific development on different levels. He also met with Prof. Maher Natsheh, Acting President of An-Najah and Dr. Khalil Issa, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences well as a number of faculty members and teaching staff.
Prof. Suleiman is a Palestinian-British scientist who has hundreds of research productions and won several global awards in heart disease. His visit to Palestine aims to establish research cooperation with the Palestinian universities in various research areas.
