Personal profile


A/Prof James Hare is a Cardiologist in the Heart Failure & Transplant service at The Alfred in Melbourne.

He is an Adjunct Clinical Associate Professor at Monash University and a Honorary Research Fellow at the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute. He completed his PhD in advanced echocardiography at the University of Queensland with Professor Tom Marwick. His thesis investigated the role of novel cardiac imaging techniques such as myocardial strain and 3D echo to assess left ventricular function in clinical populations. Particular emphases were on technique reproducibility, impact on clinical decision-making and use of advanced imaging techniques to assess response to randomised interventions (pharmacological and exercise). These were targeted to conditions such as hypertensive heart disease, T2DM and chemotherapy cardiotoxicity. 

Subsequently, he completed a post-doctoral fellowship in cardiac MRI with Professor Matthias Friedrich at the Libin Cardiovascular Institute, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Specific research interests in cardiac MRI have included tissue characterization techniques (T2 and T1 mapping), oxygenation-sensitive CMR (BOLD), reproducibility studies and implementation of new CMR techniques into clinical practice.

Dr Hare has published and presented cardiac imaging research in both echocardiography and cardiac MRI at multiple international meetings and journals in Asia/Pacific, Europe and United States, including oral presentations at the Annual Scientific Sessions of the American Heart Association and the European Society of Cardiology Congress. He is an active member of the Australian and New Zealand Working Group on Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (ANZCMR), as well as a member of the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR). He is a member if the Australian Amyloidosis Network (AAN) and is Vice Chair of the AAN cardiac subcommittee.  He is a current member of the American Heart Association and the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation.
