Peter Psaltis is an early career Academic Cardiologist, who graduated from Medicine at the University of Adelaide (1999), having ranked outright first in each of his six years of medical school, and as the recipient of 25 academic awards and prizes, including the University and Alumni University Medals. Following clinical training in Cardiology at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, he undertook doctoral (Adelaide, Australia, 2006-09) and post-doctoral studies (Mayo Clinic, MN, USA, 2009-12) in the areas of stem cell cardiomyoplasty and vascular biology, and also became expert in noninvasive and invasive coronary and cardiac imaging (MRI, CT, reporter gene technology, IVUS, OCT), and cellular transplantation. During this time, he was funded by the NHMRC and National Heart Foundation of Australia, and received nine young/early career investigator awards.
In 2015, Dr Psaltis relocated to SAHMRI, where he is Deputy Leader of the Heart Health Theme and Co-director of the Vascular Research Centre. He also holds appointments at the University of Adelaide (Senior Research Fellow) and Royal Adelaide Hospital (Consultant Interventional Cardiologist).
RESEARCH INTERESTS AND ACHIEVEMENTS
Dr Psaltis has unique expertise across all three disciplines of basic, translational and clinical research, and leads bench-to-bedside projects spanning topics of developmental macrophage biology, vascular stem cells, inflammatory regulation of atherosclerosis, pharmacological modification of atherosclerosis and coronary plaque imaging. Dr Psaltis’ paradigm-shifting discovery of adventitial macrophage progenitor cells (AMPCs) as a self-renewing source of macrophages in the postnatal vasculature resulted in first author publications in Circulation and Circulation Research, and was awarded the inaugural Early Career Investigator Award from the ATVB Council at the American Heart Association Meeting (2011) and Best Research Prize at the International Congress of Lipids and Atherosclerosis in South Korea (2016). He also received consecutive top 10 abstract rankings and travel grants to present orally at the Gordon Research Conference for Atherosclerosis in 2011 and 2013.
As the holder of a National Heart Foundation Future Leader Fellowship, Dr Psaltis is an emerging leader in the fields of Interventional Cardiology, Stem Cell Cardiomyoplasty and Vascular Biology. He has given numerous invited presentations nationally and overseas on these topics. He was an inaugural member of the Australian and New Zealand Cardiologist Cell Therapy Network (2014), an invitee of the Australian Academy of Sciences Think Tank for Stem Cell Research (2015) and a Faculty Member of AstraZeneca's PERMIT Program (2016) which provided updated expert recommendations for post-ACS management in Australia. He is national and site PI for drug therapy and coronary imaging trials in atherosclerosis, and was program director of the Interventional Cardiology stream for the Scientific Organising Committee of the 2016 CSANZ meeting. His growing status as an international leader in coronary intervention is evident by recent invitations to peer review and editorialise for The Lancet, and invitations as both speaker and expert panellist at consecutive Hartzler Interventional Symposia in the USA.
Dr Psaltis directs the scientific program and co-chairs the weekly Heart Health Seminar at SAHMRI, which is open to the wider scientific community across all universities and teaching hospitals in Adelaide.
As of April 30 2017, Dr Psaltis has published 83 full-text original manuscripts, editorials and review articles (>50 over the last five years). His first/senior author papers include publications in The Lancet, Circulation, Circulation Research, Stem Cells, JACC Cardiovasc Interventions, JACC Cardiovasc Imaging, Journal of Cellular Physiology, Nature Cardiology Reviews. He is also first author on two book chapters in the online version of Braunwald's Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine and has presented in excess of 100 scientific abstracts.
Dr Psaltis has supervised three Honours students to completion (all awarded Class IA), and currently supervises 7 PhD students (5 Uni of Adel, 2 Uni SA), 4 post-doctoral fellows and 2 research assistants. He has received three awards for excellence in teaching at the University of Adelaide.
PEER REVIEW ACTIVITIES
Dr Psaltis has provided peer review for >35 journals, and is Associate Editor for Heart, Lung and Circulation (2015- ) and on the editorial board of Journal of Geriatric Cardiology (2011- ). He provides yearly NHMRC peer-review for fellowship and project grant applications. He was on the Postdoctoral Fellowship Committee for the Heart Foundation in 2016 and will serve on the NHMRC Grant Review Panel (2017- ).
