Cardiology

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Australia and worldwide.

Our cardiology teams are committed to preventing death and suffering from heart disease. Our leading research aims to improve the prediction and prevention of heart attacks, and the management of heart attack patients. We are also working to improve diagnosis of the disease.

We are a group of scientists and physicians developing patient-focused research to target the major challenges of diseases of the heart and blood vessels. The Kolling Institute’s close collaboration with the Royal North Shore Hospital ensures our clinical observations and scientific breakthroughs are directly incorporated into patient care.
