Cardiac Physiology & Transplantation
The Cardiac Physiology and Transplantation Division, headed by Professor Michael Feneley, is made up of four groups that take diverse and complementary approaches to heart disease, heart failure and transplantation.
Professor Michael Feneley
also leads the Cardiovascular Mechanics Laboratory, which investigates the contractile properties of the heart and how these properties change in different disease states.
The Heart Transplantation Laboratory, headed by Professor Peter Macdonald
, is focused on the preservation of donor organs and clinical trials of new therapies to improve patient outcomes after heart transplantation. Prof Macdonald is also investigating new treatments for pulmonary arterial hypertension.
The Pulmonary Hypertension Laboratory is run by Professor Anne Keogh, who is a Senior Heart Transplant Cardiologist at St Vincent's Hospital. Prof Keogh's research program at the Victor Chang Institute focuses on pulmonary arterial hypertension, heart transplantation, immunosuppression and left heart failure clinical trials.
The Vascular-Ventricular Interactions Laboratory, headed by Professor Michael O’Rourke, has been focusing on how arterial stiffening adversely effects left ventricular load and function upstream and small vessel structure and function downstream.
