Rising Star Award

We would like to congratulate Dr Gillian Blue from Kids Heart Research, Heart Centre for Children who was awarded the Rising Star Award at the 2021 Sydney Cardiovascular Symposium, for her outstanding contribution to Cardiovascular Research. The 2021 Symposium was dedicated to the innovative theme of cardiovascular remodelling and regeneration in research and clinical practice. This award recognises Gillian's work and research in understanding the genetic mechanisms underlying congenital heart disease.

Gillian is a Postdoctoral Scientist and Genetic Counsellor at the Heart Centre for Children, based at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. She is a Clinical Senior Lecturer at the Discipline of Genetic Medicine, The University of Sydney and a Visiting Scientist at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute. Her primary research interest is understanding the genetic mechanisms underlying congenital heart disease using genomic technologies, as well as the associated clinical and psychosocial implications. In addition to her research, Gillian manages the Kids Heart Research DNA BioBank, a critical resource in CHD genetics research.
