Anugrah Nair


Dr. Anugrah Nair is the youngest cardiologist to join our PhD program at Canberra Heart Rhythm. He is deeply dedicated to electrophysiology, and his passion for research has steered him towards this program. Notably, during his cardiology training in India, he was awarded the Heart Failure Association of India's Best Dissertation Award in 2022 for his outstanding research work. An astute clinician with exceptional empathy and a beaming smile, combined with a sharp intellect and quick wit, truly sets him apart.

Dr. Nair's proficiency in accurate diagnosis and the development of effective treatment plans extends beyond the confines of the hospital. With a natural gift for public speaking and a fervor for teaching, he aims to impart his knowledge, particularly in electrophysiology, to aspiring students as he advances in his career as an electrophysiologist.

Beyond his commitment to healthcare excellence, Dr. Nair maintains an active lifestyle outside the hospital, engaging in various sports such as football and basketball. Additionally, he is a skilled boxer and holds certification as a trainer.  Deeply spiritual, he seeks balance through meditation and cooking. This holistic approach to life reflects his dedication to achieving balance and overall well-being.

PhD Project:

Investigating Mid-Range Cardiomyopathy: Etiology, Pathophysiology, and Treatment Approaches.

  • Unravelling the pathophysiological mechanisms that differentiate HFmrEF from HFrEF and HFpEF, with a specific emphasis on left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) transition.
  • Proposing novel treatment approaches tailored to address the specific pathophysiological characteristics of HFmrEF, aiming to improve patient outcomes and quality of life.
