Research

Mark Richards is the director of the Christchurch Heart Institute. He coordinates and directs multi-disciplinary programmes of grant-funded translational cardiovascular research which seek to improve diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic options in heart disease.

He is pursuing studies of epidemiological, molecular biological, neurohormonal and therapeutic aspects of acute and chronic cardiovascular disorders including hypertension, coronary syndromes, and the full spectrum of heart failure.

Richards holds the Heart Foundation of New Zealand’s Chair in Cardiovascular Studies. He also holds joint appointments at the University of Otago and the National University of Singapore’s Cardiovascular Research Institute. His research interests include:

  • Neurohormonal physiology and pathophysiology in cardiovascular health and disease
  • Heart Failure
  • Acute Coronary Syndromes
  • Hypertension
  • Vasoactive Hormones
  • The Cardiac Natriuretic Peptides
