Associate Professor Julie McMullen



Associate Professor Julie McMullen (PhD) heads the Cardiac Hypertrophy Laboratory at the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute and is Head of the Discovery & Preclinical Domain at the Institute. Associate Professor McMullen graduated from the School of Physiology and Pharmacology at the University of New South Wales. She then trained as a Cardiology Research Fellow at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centre and Harvard Medical School in Boston. During this time she gained experience generating and characterising cardiac specific transgenic mice. In early 2005, Associate Professor McMullen established her own laboratory at the Baker. Her research interests include molecular mechanisms responsible for the induction of physiological and pathological cardiac hypertrophy, heart failure, atrial fibrillation and cardiotoxicity. Associate Professor McMullen is currently supported by an NHMRC Research Fellowship. She sits on the Editorial Board of Clinical and Experimental Pharmacology and Physiology and Clinical Science, and is a Fellow of the American Heart Association and International Society for Heart Research.
