Mori is a professor and senior research fellow of the National Health and Medical Council of Australia in the School of Medicine and Pharmacology, University of Western Australia, Perth. He is interested in various aspects of nutrition, hypertension, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease (CVD), with a research focus on omega-3 fatty acids and CVD. Other research interests include the role of lipid oxidation in atherosclerosis and CVD; fatty acid metabolism; anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acid-derived resolvins and protectins; platelet and leukocyte function; and control mechanisms in blood pressure regulation.
Dr. Mori leads a research group investigating cardiometabolic risk factors associated with the Western Australian Pregnancy Cohort Study (Raine Study): an ongoing longitudinal study involving 2,860 participants studied from pregnancy to their current age of 27 years.
Mori’s research has been supported by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia, National Heart Foundation of Australia and Australian Research Council. He has more than 260 peer-reviewed papers in leading international medical and scientific journals.
