NHMRC Principal Research Fellow and Head, Cardiovascular Disease Program, Biomedical Discovery Institute, Monash University.
Kate Denton is currently a Professor in the Department of Physiology at Monash University. An integrative physiologist her research focuses on cardiovascular and renal physiology, with a particular emphasis on the role of the kidney in the regulation of arterial pressure. Current projects examine sex-differences in the role of the renin-angiotensin in arterial pressure regulation, the impact of a hypertension during pregnancy on mothers and offspring, the development of non-invasive imaging methods to track CKD progression and renal denervation as a treatment for hypertension and CKD.
Professor Denton is an active national and international member of High Blood Pressure Research Societies (2008-10). Her work has been internationally recognised. In 2017, she received the AHA Council for Hypertension Dustan Award, which recognises female investigators that have made an outstanding contribution in the field of hypertension and in 2018, she received the inaugural International Society of Hypertension Excellence Award for Research in Cardiovascular Disease in Women. Professor Denton is an Associate Editor for AJP Renal, Experimental Physiology and Biology of Sex-differences and on the Editorial Board for Hypertension and Journal of Hypertension and has sat on numerous selection committees for nationally and internationally competitive funding, most recently NHMRC Investigator Grants.
