Leone Malan

Introduction

Since 2007, Leoné Malan aimed to describe a mechanistic pathway pertaining brain-heart health. Hence she designed the first psychophysiological prospective study in Sub Saharan Africa and received an international award for project design excellence in 2008. She conceptualized implementation of a Hypertension Research and Training clinic and cardiovascular monitoring programs. She is a working group member of the European Society of Cardiology on myocardial function and holds various professional memberships. Publications total >141 (H-index 24) and she has trained 32 Masters and PhD students. Currently, she and her expert collaborative team are developing a clinical diagnostic tool to phenotype chronic stress and cardiac disease.
