Heart Valve Replacements: Past, Present, and Future Directions

One-day workshop

Event is held in hybrid mode with zoom links will be provided closer to the event.

We welcome you to this multidisciplinary meeting highlighting current research in novel heart valve technologies.

The day is organized by our group based at Sydney University, comprising bioengineers, computational modelling scientists, and clinicians. We aim to bring a better valve to children who require a heart valve replacement on the right side of their heart, but the work is increasingly relevant to people of all ages with heart valve disease.
We are excited to be joined by leading national and international guest speakers, making significant contributions in this field.
