CSANZ 2021

Diane Fatkin

Our international faculty will be joining us for live virtual presentations and Q&A.

Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, NSW

Professor Diane Fatkin trained in Clinical Cardiology and Molecular Genetics and is currently Head of the Sr Bernice Research Program in Inherited Heart Diseases, in the Molecular Cardiology Division of the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, Sydney. She also holds appointments as Honorary Medical Officer in the Cardiology Department, St Vincent’s Hospital, and Professor (conjoint) in the Faculty of Medicine, UNSW Sydney. Her research is focused on understanding the molecular genetic basis of inherited cardiomyopathies, with a specific interest in familial dilated cardiomyopathy and familial atrial fibrillation. This work spans from clinical and genetics studies in families with inherited cardiomyopathies to functional genomics in the cell, mouse, and zebrafish models. A major objective of the team’s research is the “bench-to-bedside” translation of new insights about disease mechanisms into personalised approaches to patient management.
