Originally from New Zealand, Dr. Bradley obtained his medical degree from the University of Otago. He completed his Pediatric and Pediatric Cardiology training at Wellington Hospital in New Zealand, the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver, and The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. He joined the staff at the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon as a Pediatric Cardiologist in 2016.
His clinical interests include echocardiography, fetal echocardiography, and aortic and vascular diseases. His research is focused on the detection of premature atherosclerosis in at-risk pediatric disease populations and aortic wall biomechanics that predispose to aortic disease. His research expertise is in non-invasive assessment of arterial stiffness in children, and he is working on the development of a method which will have general clinical applicability to all at-risk pediatric disease populations.
In 2017, Dr. Bradley was awarded a Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Research Grant, along with the rest of the CHAMPS investigators, to help further develop the CHAMPS: Children’s Healthy-Heart and Activity Monitoring Program is Saskatchewan. The aim of the CHAMPS program is to longitudinally assess cardiovascular, metabolic, nutritional, body composition, physical activity levels and psychological health measures in children with congenital heart disease. His focus in this project is to identify predictors of arterial stiffness, a very strong predictor of adult onset cardiovascular diseases, which are being increasingly recognized in children growing up with congenital heart disease.
