NHMRC Grants announced

Posted by Kylie Flament on 30 October 2013

The good news continued this week with the announcement that two research projects that Heart Centre staff are involved in have secured funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council.  The projects are:

Improving functional outcomes after Fontan surgery by a cross-sectional study of the outcomes following variation in practice in Australia and New Zealand: focus on anticoagulation and cardiac shunting by the fenestration

&

Clinical, Genetic and Psychosocial Aspects of Sudden Cardiac Death

The competition for these highly-prestigious grants is intense, so we are very proud of A/Prof David Winlaw, Dr Julian Ayer, Dr Nadine Kasparian and everyone else involved.

For more information about our research teams and the work that they do, go to http://www.heartcentreforchildren.com.au/kids-heart-research.html.
