Welcome to the High Blood Pressure Research Council of Australia
The High Blood Pressure Research Council of Australia has been at the forefront of research into the causes, prevention and treatment of high blood pressure since its inception in 1979. Our research incorporates the full range from experimental molecular biology and genetics to human physiology and drug treatment of hypertension. Its members are among the national and international leaders in the field of cardiovascular research.
The Council holds its own Annual Scientific Meeting, often conjointly with other societies, where members and students present their latest research findings. The meeting comprises special sessions and prizes for students and young investigators, as well as the Judith Whitworth Women in High Blood Pressure Award, the Jaye Chin-Dusting Mid-career Scientist in High Blood Pressure Research Award and the Paul Korner Senior Scientist in High Blood Pressure Research Medal. The meeting highlights include 3 named lectures: The R D Wright, the Austin E Doyle and the Colin I Johnston lectureships awarded to leading scientists or physicians. Our 2018 meeting was held in Glenelg, South Australia jointly with the Australian Atherosclerosis Society (AAS) and the Australian Vascular Biology Society (AVBS).
The Council maintains regular communication with members through our electronic newsletters, and regular social media updates through Facebook and twitter. Please feel free to follow us!
New members are always welcome!
