Personal profile

Biography

Danny is a Winthrop Professor based in the School of Sport and Exercise Science. He also has close ties to several international institutions, including the Mayo Clinic and Liverpool John Moores University, where he is a Professor of Cardiovascular Physiology.

An NHMRC Principal Research Fellow, Danny is a cardiovascular exercise physiologist specialising in the prevention of chronic disease. His research encompasses the lifespan; from exercise training in the prevention of the development of atherosclerosis in obese children and adolescents, to research on the best combination of exercise and medications in the management of patients with coronary disease, stroke, hypercholesterolaemia, diabetes and heart failure patients awaiting transplantation.

Danny has established a Cardiovascular Research Group at UWA, with a busy, dedicated laboratory and a diverse team of postdoctoral and graduate students and staff from Australia, Africa, South East Asia, Europe and North America. Utilising transdisciplinary research partnerships between science, engineering and medicine, this group aims to invent ways to detect incipient chronic disease at the earliest possible stage, to identify and optimise lifestyle interventions to prevent clinical manifestation of chronic diseases in humans, and to develop personalised, targeted and evidence-based interventions to optimise disease prevention.

Many of the studies conducted by the Cardiovascular Research Group benefit from specific technologies invented and developed by Danny and his research team, including detailed analysis techniques for blood flow effects on the arterial wall.
