Stuart Grieve
Professor – University of Sydney

Prof Stuart Grieve is an academic Radiologist with a primary career focus in cardiac, neurological and vascular imaging. He leads a research program that spans basic physics, biology and fluid dynamics through to practical trials of clinical efficacy. He is focused on using cutting-edge imaging acquisition techniques, innovative analysis and pragmatic clinical translation to improve the practice of medicine. As an undergraduate he trained in Biochemistry and Chemistry at the University of Sydney, then completed a DPhil in MRI physics at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar where he worked on the fundamental technology that lies at the heart of most cutting-edge MRI today. Following post-doctoral training in cardiovascular and neurological preclinical MRI, he returned to Australia to do his Medical and Radiology specialist training. Prof Grieve now leads an innovative and successful laboratory targeting both the brain and the heart, also sub-specialising clinically in these areas. He is the Parker-Hughes Chair of Radiology at the University of Sydney, leads the Imaging Group at the Heart Research Institute and holds a clinical appointment at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital.

Professor Stuart Grieve is the Parker Hughes Professor of Radiology at the University of Sydney and a consultant radiologist at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. He also holds clinical appointments at Macquarie University, Sydney Adventist and Epworth Hospitals. He is the leader of the Sydney Translational Imaging Laboratory at the Heart Research Institute & Charles Perkins Centre. He is a dual-trained clinician scientist, with a PhD from Oxford University in MRI physics. His clinical and research work are both focused on developing, translating and applying advances in imaging to improve patient outcomes. He has published over 140 papers and received over $8 million in competitive grants.

Concussion, depression, dementia and surgical brain injury are important disorders that impact on a large proportion of society. Current clinical imaging offers little to assist in the management of these disorders, with changes either “invisible” to conventional techniques or occurring too late for meaniningful intervention. The neuroimaging program in Prof Grieve’s laboratory is focussed on using advanced MRI to reveal, measure and understand the early changes across these disorders. He will present unique data from the most detailed MRI brain image ever, acquired recently at the Mayo Clinic.
