Danny Green in a human integrative biologist whose research focuses on the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
His specific expertise relates to novel imaging approaches to the assessment of micro and macrovascular diseases, including surrogate measures of early and occult disease.
He is a cardiovascular exercise physiologist who assesses the impact of exercise, exercise training and physical activity in the context of prevention. This includes the best combinations of exercise, pharmacological and other preventative measures to minimise future development of atherosclerosis in young people at high risk and in older people in whom re-occurrence of cardiovascular disease is common.
His research encompasses the lifespan; from exercise training in the prevention of the development of atherosclerosis in obese children and adolescents, to research on the best combination of exercise and medications in the management of patients with hypercholesterolemia, diabetes and coronary disease.
