Emeritus Professor Paul Ivan Korner AO (18 November 1925 – 3 October 2012) was a Czech–Australian cardiac physiologist noted for his contributions to the understanding of hypertension, especially essential hypertension.
Early life and education
Korner attended Barker College and the University of Sydney, where he commenced medical studies before taking a break to earn a B.Sc. (1946) and a M.Sc. (1947). He completed his medical education in 1951 and undertook his internship at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital.
Korner was a director of the Baker Medical Research Institute in Melbourne.
In 1979, the High Blood Pressure Research Council of Australia was formed, in large part due to Korner.
After a brief illness, Korner died at North Shore Private Hospital in St Leonards, New South Wales, Australia. At the time, Korner resided in Woolwich, a suburb on the lower North Shore of Sydney. He was survived by his wife, Jennifer (née Woods); his children, Nicholas, Anthony, and Harriet; and grandchildren, Mauricio, John, Brayan, Tom, Daniel, and Paul.
A weekly seminar series presented by doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, located in Darlinghurst, New South Wales, Australia, has been named in honour of Korner.
