Professor Sanders is a clinical academic based at the University of Adelaide, Royal Adelaide Hospital and the South Australian Health and Medical Research Insititute. He is the Director of the Centre for Heart Rhythm Disorders at the University of Adelaide; Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing at the Royal Adelaide Hospital; and the Group Leader for Heart Rhythm Disorders at SAHMRI.

He graduated from the University of Adelaide with Honours, awarded several prizes and named on the Dean’s list for academic merit. He trained as a Cardiologist was at the Royal Adelaide Hospital before sub-specialising in Cardiac Electrophysiology at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. His doctoral studies at the University of Melbourne were under the mentorship of Professor Jonathan Kalman.

In 2005 he moved back to Adelaide and has established a formidable team of clinicians and researchers who span the spectrum of research into heart rhythm disorders; ranging from computer modelling of cardiac arrhythmias, cellular electrophysiology, small and large animal models of disease to evaluate arrhythmia mechanisms, clinical mechanistic, outcome and more recently population based studies. The group has an established clinical trials program and is involved in development of novel technologies.
