Flinders at the heart of prestigious weekend prizes

Flinders’ College of Medicine and Public Health proved its cardio credentials over the weekend, winning two of the four prestigious prizes at the 66th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand in Brisbane.

Dhani Dharmaprani, a PhD candidate, won the inaugural Heart Rhythm Prize for best research project. Her win represents the first national-level research prize awarded in the field of cardiac electrophysiology.

Dr Rebecca Perry, who is a Post-Doctoral Fellow at Flinders University’s Cardiac Imaging Research Group, won the Heart Failure Abstract Presentation Prize.

The event is hosted by the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand and is Australia’s major national meeting in the field of cardiology. It was held over 2 to 5 August 2018.

Of the four section finals, the University was represented in three – with Dr Kat Raman, also in the Cardiac Imaging Research Group, an imaging section finalist.
