Jim Cameron is Director of the Monash Cardiovascular Research Centre and Associate Director of MonashHEART at Monash Medical Centre. He is internationally known for work on large, conduit artery function and mechanics with particular interests in hypertension, assessment of arterial function in vascular health and in biological ageing; and more recently his group has been at the forefront of novel approaches to the assessment of cardiac function using cardiac CT. He was co-recipient of the 2004 RJ Hall prize of the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand and was admitted to Fellowship of the Society in 2006. From 2008
to 2013 he was Professor of Engineering (Biomedical) at La Trobe University. He is
immediate Past-President of the International Society of Vascular Health.
