Inaugural Professorial Lecture - Greg Jones

Greg Jones’ research focuses on identifying markers to aid the detection of cardiovascular diseases. These include testing for inherited (genetic) and environment-induced (epigenetic) changes that can be detected in simple blood tests. His group has a strong clinical emphasis, particularly in the areas of heart disease, aortic aneurysm, peripheral arterial disease and varicose veins.

Greg leads an international consortium, with members from over a dozen countries, which is examining the inherited risk factors for abdominal aortic aneurysm. This study, the largest of its kind, has identified several new aspects of this disease currently under investigation as potential drug treatments. In addition, he is leading a national initiative to equitably improve cardiovascular disease screening in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Refreshments will be served after the Lecture.
