Professor John Beltrame - Professor of Medicine, Michell Chair, University of Adelaide.
Position: Lead Researcher
Group: Translational Vascular Function Research Collaborative
Theme: Cardiovascular Disease

Professor John Beltrame is the Head of the Discipline of Medicine at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital. He is an academic cardiologist with active research, clinical and teaching roles.
His international reputation and expertise focuses on coronary vascular disorders. However, in recent years he has broadened his focus to include:
- Peripheral artery disease (in collaboration with the Vascular Surgical Research Group led by Professor Rob Fitridge).
- Molecular mechanisms in vascular disorders (in collaboration with Dr David Wilson).
- Gender disparities in cardiovascular disorders.
- Depression (in collaboration with Dr Geoff Schrader).
- Cardiovascular imaging and health service delivery, with projects such as CADOSA (Coronary Angiogram Database of South Australia).

His collaborative studies not only involve local hospitals and institutions but also international institutions in the United States, Holland, Italy and Japan.
.

Prof Beltrame is focused on translational research, an approach that aims to ensure medical research findings are usable and applicable to patients as quickly as possible. This involves a combination of different types of research:

  • Firstly, integrated laboratory and clinical research or ‘bench to beside’ research which includes discoveries generated in the laboratory and then developed in clinical trials.
  • Secondly, exploring ways of applying evidence-based medicine, recommendations or guidelines to clinical practice. This type of research yields knowledge about real-world settings.

Prof Beltrame undertakes basic, clinical and epidemiological studies into cardiovascular disorders with the objective of improving the health of these patients. Currently the group focuses on coronary heart disease and peripheral artery disease, although many principles are applicable to other vascular disorders.

The research group includes both clinicians and medical scientists located at the Basil Hetzel Institute, the University of Adelaide Medical School and the Central Adelaide Local Health Network. The integrative nature of the group provides a unique opportunity to ensure that innovations are translated from bench to bedside to health outcome, as well as the reverse.

The following research projects are available for semester 1 start and mid-year entry may be considered:

Project 1

Title: Coronary Angiogram Database of South Australia (CADOSA): Improving health outcomes in patients undergoing coronary angiography

Description:Coronary angiography is the clinical benchmark technique in the assessment of coronary artery disease with more than 6,000 performed in South Australia each year. Despite its diagnostic benefits in identifying the presence of coronary disease, its benefit to the patient has been less rigorously studied and will be the focus of this project. CADOSA is an internationally renowned clinical registry incorporating global links with organizations including the American College of Cardiology National Cardiovascular Data Registry and the International Consortium of Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM).

Projects Available: Honours and HDR

Location: Basil Hetzel Institute for Translational Health Research, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital

Special Requirements: DCSI Clearance, Vaccinations 

 

Project 2

Title: Clinical and Vasomotor Studies of Patients with Myocardial Infarction and Non-Obstructive Coronary Arteries (MINOCA)

Description: Approximately 5-10% of patients who experience a myocardial infarct do not have significant coronary artery disease, prompting the clinical question of what is the underlying mechanism? This project will (i) integrate with established registry studies to assess clinical outcomes and health status of MINOCA patients and (2) utilise invasive and non-invasive clinical techniques to elucidate potential mechanisms that may be responsible for the myocardial infarct.

Projects Available: Honours and HDR

Location: Basil Hetzel Institute for Translational Health Research, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital

Special Requirements: DCSI Clearance, Vaccinations
