  • Professor Jeremy has 20 years experience in diseases of the aorta, particularly inherited aortopathies, such as Marfan syndrome and familial aneurysm syndromes.

    His work involves close collaboration with the cardiac surgery team at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in the diagnosis and management of patients with aortic disease.

    His research interests include mechanisms of aortic aneurysm formation, and clinical management and outcomes of thoracic aortic aneurysm disease.

    Research projects include the study of predictors of survival for aortic disease, mechanical function of the normal and aneurysmal aorta and the molecular mechanisms of aneurysm formation. Clinical and basic science research opportunities are available for graduate and undergraduate research students.
