Endocrine Hypertension Research Centre

The University of Queensland's Endocrine Hypertension Research Centre is based at Greenslopes and Princess Alexandra Hospitals. The Centre is a major clinical referral centre for the management of hypertension and our research investigates:

  • endocrine varieties - especially primary aldosteronism (PA),
  • renovascular hypertension,
  • pheochromocytoma,
  • renin-secreting tumors,
  • the syndrome of hypertension and hyperkalemia with normal glomerular filtration rate, also known as hereditary hyperkalemic hypertension, and
  • pseudo-hypoaldosteronism type 2 or Gordon's syndrome (named after the Centre's founder).
