A/Professor James Hudson
Group Leader of the Cardiac Bioengineering Research Group at QIMR Berghofer
Associate Professor James Hudson is the Group Leader of the Cardiac Bioengineering Research Group at QIMR Berghofer. His previous research has led to the development of human cardiac organoids that provide a model of human heart tissue in a dish. This research has also led to the discovery of biological processes that regulate cardiac biology and new drug candidates.
Associate Professor Hudson studied chemical and biological engineering before obtaining his PhD in Biotechnology at the University of Queensland in 2011. He was appointed a German Cardiology Society Fellow and completed post-doctoral studies at the University Medical Centre in Göttingen, Germany from 2011-2012. He established his own research laboratory in 2014 and moved to QIMR Berghofer in 2018. Associate Professor Hudson won an inaugural Snow Medical Fellowship to support his research from 2021-2028. He has received a number of prestigious awards, including the 2019 Metcalf Prize for Stem Cell Research and the Centenary Institute’s Medical Innovation Award in 2017.
