The HMRI Cardiovascular Health Program brings together researchers who are exploring human heart disease across prevention, revascularisation and quality of life for cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary disease patients.
The researchers work across holistic, systemic, cellular and molecular levels. Their work is focussed on cardiopulmonary control mechanisms and the modification of physical activity and nutrition behaviours to improve cardiovascular health.
Research within the Cardiovascular Health Program includes biomedical, clinical, public health and education research, and is providing novel treatments and interventions in the key areas of:
Many of the researchers in the program are affiliated with the University of Newcastle Priority Research Centre in Physical Activity and Nutrition as there is a natural link between nutrition and physical activity and conditions such as obesity and diabetes.
