Dr Andre LaGerche

St Vincent's Institute of Medical Research

Professional Bio
Andre completed a PhD at the University of Melbourne and 4 years of post-doctoral research at the University Hospital of Leuven, Belgium studying the effect of endurance exercise on the heart. In particular, exercise CMR was used to understand the mechanisms of right ventricular arrhythmias. Major research interests can be summarised as: “exertional symptoms require assessment during exertion” reflecting the fact that resting imaging is a poor surrogate of functional limitation. Andre has developed novel echocardiographic and CMR methodologies for assessment of the right ventricle and pulmonary circulation during exercise. These have been applied to the assessment of heart failure, congenital heart disease, pulmonary hypertension and athletes. He has over 90 peer-review publications and text-book chapters including publications in Circulation and the European Heart Journal.
