Our Scientists

Professor Livia Hool

Based at The University of Western Australia, Professor Livia Hool is one of our newest faculty members to join the Victor Chang Institute. Professor Hool decided to pursue a career in heart research after observing how quickly heart attack patients deteriorated to heart failure and death in the Coronary Care Unit.

Now an expert in electrophysiology, Livia leads a team of nine talented researchers who are investigating the effects of calcium and free radicals on heart function. Prof Hool is also currently optimising treatments to help people suffering from ischemic and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, as well as heart failure associated with muscular dystrophy.
