The Cardiovascular Centre works closely with the University of Adelaide’s Centre for Heart Rhythm Disorders, undertaking world-class research and making breakthroughs in new treatments.

The Centre for Heart Rhythm Disorders is a dynamic and dedicated research organisation committed to excellence in cardiac electrophysiology. The group is involved in both research and clinical management of heart rhythm disorders, allowing the rapid and direct translation of novel research discoveries to benefit patients.

The research programs of the Centre focus on the spectrum of heart rhythm disorders and involve a multidisciplinary team of physicians, bioengineers, research scientists and computational modelers. There is an integrated approach to research at the molecular, cellular, whole heart and patient level.

The mission of the centre is to advance the understanding and management of heart rhythm disorders with the aim of improving health and wellbeing in the community.

Our clinical group has strong associations with the Centre for Heart Rhythm Disorders at the University of Adelaide, and their research is internationally renowned, attracting numerous awards. They have contributed greatly to the understanding of the mechanisms of various aspects of heart disease and have been at the forefront of developing new and innovative treatment tools.

The physicians in our EP clinic are involved in cutting edge research into cardiac rhythm disorders. The experience and expertise of our EP team has placed our EP clinic among the top referral centres in Australia for evaluation and treatment of complex arrhythmias.
