Dr Jonathan Mynard - Leader of Cardiovascular Bioengineering @ MCRI.

Dr Mynard is a bioengineer and Senior Research Officer who specialises in cardiovascular modelling, blood pressure and flow dynamics (haemodynamics) and congenital heart disease. He was recently awarded an R.D. Wright Career Development Fellowship from the NHMRC. 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 Overseas Biomedical 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 @ MCRI team, 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 160 papers in 38 physiology, medical and bioengineering journals.
