We are investigating ways to repair and regenerate the injured heart.
Although we can diagnose and treat many of the underlying causes of heart injury, the heart remains one of the least regenerative organs in the body.
Our basic laboratory research is combined with clinical research conducted through the Department of Cardiology at Westmead Hospital. We are co-located and closely aligned with the Cardiac Gene Therapy Laboratory.
Novel treatments to repair/regenerate the injured heart are urgently needed and will have a dramatic impact on morbidity and mortality of patients with heart disease.
