Atherosclerosis and Vascular Remodelling

Our mission is to identify and gain insights from the genetic and molecular pathways involved in cardiovascular disorders, and exploit these pathways to provide better therapeutic options to eradicate cardiovascular disease.


Cardiac Imaging

Our mission is to improve patient outcomes using cutting-edge imaging technology and computational methods.


Cardiometabolic Disease

Our mission is to improve the detection and treatment of cardiovascular disease through the development of better diagnostic markers, predictors, and novel therapies for cardiometabolic disorders.


Cardiovascular Medical Devices

Our mission is to understand the interaction of medical devices with patients’ blood, proteins and cells, with a view to develop more sophisticated and compatible materials for medical devices.


Cardiovascular Neuroscience

Our mission is to investigate what goes wrong in the brain to result in the development of cardiovascular disease, by focusing on peptides and their receptors in autonomic centres of the brain.

Cardiovascular-protective Signalling and Drug Discovery

Our mission is to repurpose existing drugs for next-generation cardiovascular disease therapy.


Clinical Research

Our mission is to detect the earliest signs of heart and blood vessel damage with a view to preventing serious complications later in life.


Coronary Diseases

Our mission is to reduce death and disability associated with heart and lower limb arterial disease by reducing atherosclerotic plaque build-up.


Haematology Research

Our mission is to discover targets for new and safe anti-thrombotics, and improve on current treatments.


Heart Rhythm and Stroke Prevention

Our mission is to detect silent atrial fibrillation in the population and treat it, to prevent as many strokes as possible.



Our mission is to establish new and innovative approaches to the prevention and treatment of heart disease and stroke – positioning Australia as a leader in the discovery and development of innovative therapies for the treatment of atherothrombotic diseases.


Vascular Complications

Our mission is to understand fundamental mechanisms in molecular and cellular biology and develop more effective treatments for the debilitating conditions associated with vascular complications.

Vascular Immunology

Vascular Immunology

Our mission is to understand the causes and progression of preeclampsia in pregnancy and examine the links between high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease in women.
