Research & publications
Professor Mayet’s research interests are in the clinical development of new technologies for assessing and treating the heart and arteries and understanding how we can fine-tune current treatments to improve outcomes. Specifically he has interests in the physiology of coronary flow and blood pressure as well as the factors associated with the development of atherosclerosis. He has a long-standing interest in cardiac structural and functional variations in health and disease, particularly in hypertension and athletic training. He also has an interest in ethnic variations in cardiovascular disease. Professor Mayet has published over 175 peer-reviewed papers, many in major cardiovascular journals. He has been invited to lecture nationally and internationally in the fields of echocardiography, hypertension, diastolic dysfunction, left ventricular hypertrophy, heart failure, coronary and arterial physiology and coronary artery disease. He is a founding member of the International Centre for Circulatory Health (ICCH). The mission of ICCH is to advance standards of care in prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease to reduce the expected increase in disease burden around the world.
