Last week was a super busy one for Centenary. In addition to taking a lead role in promoting the significance and prevalence of tuberculosis for World TB Day, there was exciting news from one of the key supporters of Centenary’s molecular cardiology programs. HeartKids Australia announced a new research funding program to support Australian research into congenital and acquired childhood heart disease.

The funding will benefit Centenary’s Professor Chris Semsarian, Head of the Molecular Cardiology Group, and young investigator, Annie Evans, who were awarded a $29,000 project grant. The grant will enable them to further investigate key genes that may be responsible for electrical disturbances in the hearts of babies and young children.

Thanks so much HeartKids for your important work and generous funding.
