Hilary Grocott MD FRCPC FASE
Professor, Anesthesia & Surgery University of Manitoba
"...this multidisciplinary collaboration between clinical perfusion, cardiac surgery, cardiac anaesthesiology and other allied health professions is truly a unique educational and team building collaborative. PDU brings together a world class faculty and has a unique reputation of excellence coupled with a networking social structure that further supports both
education, and the advancement of science."
Professor, Faculty of Medicine University of Melbourne
"I have had the pleasure to lecture at the yearly Perfusion Down Under meeting and I am
well acquainted with the extraordinary contribution that Perfusion Down Under and the
Perfusion Down Under meeting make to the science, practice and art of Perfusion Medicine
and technology. I have no hesitation in saying the work of the Perfusion Down Under
group and the quality of their yearly scientific meeting are simply world class! "
Cardiac Anaesthetist / Intensivist Auckland, NZ
"It is hard to overstate the impact of the PDU Winter meeting on the Australia and New Zealand Perfusion community… The organising committee and industry representatives have poured their heart and soul into PDU over a 12-year period, creating one of the best small meetings to be found…. If there is an ideal model of industry-academic collaboration, then the PDU-LivaNova model is it."
Stephen B. Horton
Assoc. Professor, Director Perfusion, RCH, Australia
"Perfusion meetings are the main avenue for dissemination of current research projects
while providing a collegial atmosphere enabling experts from other centres to proffer assistance.
The PDU conference which is organised by local experts with the aid of LivaNova exemplifies this. ….I have found this conference second to none internationally ."
Sara Jane Allen
Cardiac Anaesthetist & Intensivist
Auckland, New Zealand
"The Perfusion Downunder (PDU) Meeting is, quite simply, an outstanding cardiac multidisciplinary meeting. Founded and organised by Perfusionists, the meeting has consistently attracted specialists from across the cardiac spectrum – anaesthetists, surgeons, intensivists, as well as perfusionists – who attend to participate in high quality academic sessions with innovative topics, and broad, inclusive discussions. The meeting has always taken a
collaborative and inclusive approach, and is well known in the Australasian cardiac community and internationally for these reasons."
