Cardiac Emergencies Research Program

Cardiologist A/Prof Dion Stub has a particular interest in treating the cardiac emergencies of myocardial infarction and cardiac arrest. He applies his significant research and clinical experience to his role as Co-Director of the CCRET, and as Cardiology Advisor to Ambulance Victoria.
