Allied Health Professionals
Our allied health professionals primarily investigate the benefits of exercise interventions in patients with complex cardiovascular disease.
Dr Adrian Elliott
Adrian is a National Heart Foundation Future Leader Fellow and a Senior Lecturer in the Adelaide Medical School. Adrian runs the research program focusing on the overlap between heart failure and atrial fibrillation, the benefits of exercise interventions amongst patients with arrhythmias, and the development of heart rhythm disorders amongst current and former elite endurance athletes. His other research interests include the role of cardiac risk factors in the development of atrial fibrillation and the role of the autonomic nervous system in patients with arrhythmias.
Adrian obtained his PhD in cardiac physiology in 2013, studying novel methods of measuring cardiac hemodynamics. He currently supervises a number of PhD students in the Centre for Heart Rhythm Disorders and is supported by grants from the National Heart Foundation. Adrian is also an accredited exercise physiologist and runs a specialised exercise clinic for patients with AF and heart failure.
