Peter Barlis, Associate Professor at the University’s North West Academic Centre, has been named a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology for his outstanding achievements in cardiovascular medicine.

The American College of Cardiology is the foremost professional society representing heart specialists in the United States and throughout the world. 

Fellows of the College must have outstanding credentials, achievements and community contribution to cardiovascular medicine and research. 

The College President, John Gordon Harold presented Associate Professor Barlis with the fellowship at a ceremony held in Washington D.C.

Associate Professor Barlis said he was honoured to be awarded the Fellowship.

"I am immensely proud to have my clinical and academic work in the field of cardiology recognised by such a prestigious association," he said. 

Professor Peter Ebeling, Chair of the North West Academic Centre, congratulated Associate Professor Barlis’ achievement and pointed to his significant work in the field of coronary imaging. 

"Associate Professor Barlis has been instrumental at introducing new imaging techniques into Australia.  He has already achieved significant success to provide new insights into coronary artery disease. 

"This pioneering work will improve our understanding of cardiovascular disease and better tailor therapies for patients in the long term," he said.

As part of his keynote address at the ceremony, Dr Harold reflected on the innovative men and women who helped to shape the College’s 65-year history and congratulated the new fellows. 

“Each of us is here tonight because of those who came before us – cardiovascular innovators like Franz Groedel, Bruno Kisch, Eliot Corday, Simon Dack, Jeremy Swan, Andreas Gruentzig, James Dove and so many countless others,” he said. 

“The history of the College and its members has strongly impacted the contemporary clinical practice of the cardiovascular profession and its patients throughout the world”.
