Professor Marwick has a long and distinguished career in cardiovascular health and research. After graduating with Honours from the University of Melbourne in 1981 with a degree in Medicine, he completed his PhD in cardiovascular imaging at the University of Louvain in Belgium in 1994.

In 2011 Professor Marwick delivered the Kempson Maddox Lecture, the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand’s premier annual oration. He won his first program grant from the National Health and Medical Research Foundation in 2009, the culmination of a decade’s work in his field, and won the Foundation’s Eccles Award (named after the Australian Nobel Prize-winner Sir John Eccles) in 1999.

Professor Marwick is an Associate Editor at the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, the world’s most widely read cardiology journal, and a Foundation Fellow of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences.

Work with us

Volunteer with us

Research grant funding often falls short of the full costs of conducting a project, and volunteer support assists Menzies’ researchers to carry out work that may not otherwise be achievable. Menzies is fortunate to be able to call on the skills, knowledge and goodwill of volunteers, who take on many different roles. Our volunteers have opportunities to learn new skills, develop their confidence, assume responsibility, maintain social contacts, and contribute to research that addresses the health needs of Tasmanians.
