A UNIVERSITY researcher was taking her cause a step further than most – by racing up 20 flights of stairs.

Amanda Burnett was due to run up Sheffield University’s famous Arts Tower steps today, to boost funding for her work into the causes of heart disease.

Her colleagues from the cardiovascular science department were joining her to raise cash for the British Heart Foundation, which funds the 28-year-old’s work looking at cell microparticles thought to affect the way in which plaques build up in the arteries and cause heart attacks.
