Professor Prash Sanders (MBBS, PhD, FRACP, FRCP, FCSANZ, FESC, FHRS) is a Clinical Academic based at the University of Adelaide and the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
He graduated from the University of Adelaide with Honours, undertook training as a Clinical Cardiologist at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and as a Cardiac Electrophysiologist at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. His PhD was undertaken at the University of Melbourne under the mentorship of Professor Jonathan Kalman. His postdoctoral studies were with the team of Professor Michel Haissaguerre at the Hôpital Cardiologique du Haut-Lévêque and Université Victor Segalen Bordeaux II, Bordeaux, France.
Professor Sanders returned to Australia in 2005 to the Knapman, National Heart Foundation Chair of Cardiology Research at the University of Adelaide and as Clinical Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. He has established a formidable team of clinicians and researchers who span the spectrum of research into heart rhythm disorders; ranging from computer modelling of cardiac arrhythmias, cellular electrophysiology, small and large animal models of disease to evaluate arrhythmia mechanisms, clinical mechanistic, outcome and more recently population based studies. The group has an established clinical trials program and is involved in development of novel technologies. In recognition of this expansive research strength, this group led by Professor Sanders has been made the Centre of Heart Rhythm Disorders (CHRD) at the University of Adelaide. Further details of staff, students, funding and projects can be found by visiting the Centre for Heart Rhythm Disorders (www.adelaide.edu.au/chrd).
He has been awarded various awards and was most recently recognised by the award of the Scopus Young Australian Medical and Medical Science Researcher of the Year 2010. In 2013 he was awarded a NHMRC Practitioner Fellowship.
Professor Sanders has an interest in all heart rhythm disorders with a particular focus on the interventional management of atrial fibrillation. He consults at the Cardiovascular Centre and undertakes procedures at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Calvary-Wakefield Hospital and Ashford Hospital. Further details on the clinical services and interest of the group can be found at www.cardiovascularcentre.com.au.

Professor Sanders has published over 230 peer-reviewed publications and has an H index of 42. Some of his recent publications are shown below. For a review of publication history: http://www.researcherid.com.proxy.library.adelaide.edu.au/rid/D-7641-2013
