Dr Jonathan Mynard - Leader of Cardiovascular Bioengineering @ MCRI.

Dr Mynard is a bioengineer who specialises in cardiovascular modelling, blood pressure and flow dynamics (haemodynamics) and congenital heart disease. He is a co-funded R.D. Wright Career Development Fellow (NHMRC) and Future Leader Fellow (National Heart Foundation). He holds a BSc in Medical Biophysics and BEng in Electronic Engineering (Swinburne University), an MRes in Computer Modelling (Swansea University, UK) and a PhD from the University of Melbourne. As a CJ Martin Fellow (NHMRC), he spent two years at the Biomedical Simulation Laboratory, University of Toronto, where he developed expertise in image-based computational fluid dynamics. Jonathan now leads the Cardiovascular Bioengineering team at MCRI, which is a part of the Heart Research group and Clinical Sciences theme within the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute. He has authored over 50 peer-reviewed publications, is on the editorial board of Heart, Lung and Circulation, and has served as reviewer for over 200 papers in 43 physiology, medical and bioengineering journals. He is an Honorary Senior Research Fellow with the Departments of Paediatrics and Biomedical Engineering, University of Melbourne and the Department of Cardiology, Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne.
