Cardiopulmonary & Haematology Physiology

This discipline encompasses all aspects of heart and lung health and covers a range of research topics including: the study of fetal cardiology; congenital heart disease; paediatric cardiovascular interventions and outcomes lung development; fetal to neonatal transition and lung growth; congenital diseases; lung injuries and infections; asthma; cystic fibrosis; mechanical ventilation; and critical care interventions.  Biology and treatment of childhood acute leukemias, the development of new drugs for the treatment of childhood cancers, and the biology and treatment of histiocytic disorders, along with platelet studies are being investigated amongst this group of researchers.
