Fixing the ailing heart
Research team leader: Associate Professor Livia Hool
I completed my PhD at Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney prior to undertaking two years’ postdoctoral research as an American Heart Association Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio. In 1998 I was awarded a Peter Doherty Fellowship from NHMRC and relocated to UWA where I established the Cardiovascular Electrophysiology Laboratory in Physiology.
