Hypertension Research

Welcome to the Denton Lab

Our vision is to improve cardiovascular health for men and women across their lifespan. Our aim is to identify the causes of hypertension to enable early disease prevention and provide new treatments to reduce the devastating effects of end-organ damage.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and a member of the Cardiovascular DiseaseDevelopment & Stem Cells, and Neuroscience Programs, and the Department of Physiology.

Our research

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is the leading risk factor for disease globally, contributing to heart disease, stroke and kidney failure. World-wide, one in four people are hypertensive and it is under-recognised that more women than men die of cardiovascular disease. Our vision is to improve cardiovascular health for men and women across their lifespan by understanding the integrative control of arterial pressure with an emphasis on the role of the kidney. Our aim is to identify the causes of hypertension to enable early disease prevention and provide new treatments to reduce the devastating effects of end-organ damage.
