Dr Robert Califf conducts a series of in-depth and personal interviews with his peers in the world of cardiology to find out what makes them tick, how they feel about the future, and what lessons they have learned during their exceptional careers.

Dr Keith Fox's life has spanned the globe-from his formative years in Zimbabwe and Malawi, training in Edinburgh, Scotland and St Louis, MO, to his current position as British Heart Foundation chair of cardiology at University of Edinburgh and resident of the British Cardiovascular Society.

Find out how optimism, hard work, and the "importance of being lucky" have shaped his life-from his close encounter with "thin" in Malawi, to his work on melanoma-derived tPA and expansion of the integrated research program in cardiovascular disease at the University of Edinburgh.
