Personal profile


Dr Brad Broughton has an emerging profile in both the national and international cardiovascular community. Brad is currently a Foundation for High Blood Pressure Research Fellow and is a senior member of the Vascular Biology and Immunopharmacology Group in the Department of Pharmacology. He is a member of two Editorial Boards (ISRN Stroke and Physiology Journal) and is a Chief Investigator on a NHMRC Project Grant and Grant-in-aid from the National Heart Foundation.

Over the past 12 years, Brad's research has contributed to our knowledge of reactive oxygen species, calcium, apoptosis, oestrogen, Rho kinase and nitric oxide signalling in the systemic, pulmonary and cerebral circulations. His studies have elucidated physiological mechanisms in vivo and in vitro, identified gender differences, as well as abnormalities in diseases including stroke, pulmonary hypertension and atherosclerosis. The primary focus of his current research is to advance our understanding of mechanisms that contribute to brain damage after stroke, develop safe and effective stroke therapies and identify novel imaging agents that detect cell loss in the brain following stroke.
