Enzo Porrello receives Heart Foundation Innovation Award

We are excited to announce that Dr Enzo Porrello has received the Heart Foundation Paul Korner Innovation Award for the most innovative successful Future Leader Fellowship. 


The award was introduced in 2013 in memory of Professor Paul Korner and his contribution to cardiovascular research and provides a single payment of $20,000 on top of the Fellowship.


The Future Leader Fellowship supports cardiovascular researchers by providing a salary as well as project funding to facilitate high impact research outcomes. Dr Porrello's Fellowship, A novel therapeutic approach for heart regeneration, will allow Dr Porrello and his team to investigate cardiac regeneration. The goal of this research is to use regenerative medicine to treat heart disease by facilitating cardiac repair following a heart attack.
