Encouraging cardiovascular research excellence in South Australia

The vision of the South Australian Cardiovascular Research Network is to build and support a vibrant and growing cardiovascular health research community in South Australia.  The network strives to facilitate connection and knowledge sharing among researchers and increase awareness and collaboration within the South Australian cardiovascular health research community.

Launched in November 2009, the network now consists of 139 members. Our members share the vision of increased collaboration amongst South Australian researchers and clinicians and a passion for cardiovascular health and research. Membership of the SA network is free, and interested persons, who work within and beyond research, are encouraged to join.

  • Connection with 139 South Australian cardiovascular researchers and research affiliates;
  • Invitations to participate and attend forums, workshops, masterclasses and seminars with research leaders;
  • Access to information via the Research Network webpage on emerging research, upcoming conferences, grant dates and events;
  • Being part of a collective voice to support cardiovascular research in South Australia.
