Dr Pierre Qian
BSc(Med) Hons., MBBS, PhD, FRACP
Clinician scientist based at Westmead Applied Research Centre and Cardiologist in the Western Sydney Local Health District
I lead a translational biomedical engineering team at Westmead Hospital developing ablation technology to treat heart rhythm disorders and high blood pressure. My PhD was awarded for developing microwave catheter ablation technology for treating cardiovascular diseases and was supported by a NHMRC and Heart Foundation co-funded postgraduate scholarship. I returned in July 2020 from a 2-year clinical and research Fellowship at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School on a Bushell Traveling Fellowship from the Royal Australasian College of Physicians where I applied novel ablation technologies for treating ventricular tachycardia in patients.
