He has published over 300 papers in the areas of applied physiology, instability, falls and fractures in older people and is acknowledged as a leading international researcher in his field. His research follows two main themes: the identification of physiologi-cal risk factors for falls and the development and evaluation of falls prevention strategies. A key aspect of this research has been the design, implementation and evaluation of exercise programs for the general population of older people as well as for those identified as being at increased risk of falls, i.e. people with Parkinson’s disease, stroke, dementia and frailty. His methodology and approach to fall-risk assessment has been adopted by many researchers and clinicians across the world and he is actively engaged in initiatives aimed at implementing falls prevention evidence into policy and practice. Syncope 1150 Q&A 1200 Meeting Close Dr Zbigniew Gieroba Dr Gieroba has studied baroreflex and syncope since 1983, completing his PhD in 1989. In 1989 he arrived from Poland to Australia, invited by Professor Bill Blessing, to be involved in research funded by the Australian Heart Foundation. There he investigated central pathways involved in baroreflex. In 2003 he underwent training in the Syncope Clinic, Cardiovascular Investigation Unit, University of Newcastle, U.K. (with Professor Rose Anne Kenny). He was also involved in the research project “Head up tilt test is safe in all age groups”. In 2005 he helped establish the Syncope Clinic at the Repatriation General Hospital.
