Dr Toan Pham

PhD

Biography

Toan completed a PhD in Physiology at the University of Auckland in 2018. His PhD research was about cardiac mechanoenergetics in health and right-heart failure.

Research | Current

His primary research interest is to understand the mechanics and energetics of the heart, particularly focussing in myocardial energy efficiency at the tissue level (trabeculae) and subcellular (mitochondria) level in both health and disease.

He is also interested in understanding how mitochondrial‑targeted antioxidant supplements affect skeletal muscle mitochondrial function in healthy aged male.

Areas of expertise

- Cardiac mechanics and energetics  - ABI work-loop calorimetry

- Mitochondrial function - high-resolution oxygraph respirometer + fluorimeters (ATP, ROS, mito MP)
