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.

Heart Centre team named 'Perfusion Unit of the Year 2012
Each year, perfusionists from Australia, New Zealand and beyond gather for their Annual Scientific Meeting. This year the 29th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Australia and New Zealand College of Perfusionists got together at the iconic Australian landmark, Uluru.
This conference incorporated active participation and knowledge from many professional disciplines involved both directly and indirectly in the provision of cardiac surgery and extra-corporeal circulation for both adults and children. This year’s program involved presentations from perfusionists, cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, cardiac anaesthetists, researchers and academics.
The scientific program included input from three leading international speakers who delivered landmark lectures on subjects pertaining to techniques and technologies surrounding the provision of cardiopulmonary bypass. In addition to the three la...
