James completed his medical degree at the University of Notre Dame, graduating with first class honours before undertaking training in cardiology at St. Vincent’s Hospital. During this training he received the St Vincent’s Clinic Foundation award for clinical excellence and completed a Master of Medicine.

His PhD was supported by scholarships from the National Health and Medical Research Council, National Heart Foundation and University of New South Wales. His thesis sought to develop new diagnostic and treatment tools for detecting vulnerable atherosclerotic plaque at-risk of causing heart attack and stroke by harnessing the clinical potential of the inflammatory enzyme myeloperoxidase.

He regularly publishes and presents research at a national and international level, with his work on the imaging of cardiac sarcoidosis supporting the basis for guideline recommendations for the diagnosis and management of this disorder. In 2023 he won the prestigious Young Investigator Award at the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging annual congress in Barcelona, a prize given to the best emerging early-career scientist.

James is currently undertaking a year-long international fellowship at King’s College London where he will be exploring the utility of imaging probes in the diagnosis and surveillance of aortic disease. He is supported in these pursuits through scholarships from the Royal Australasian College of Physicians and European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging. Upon his return in August 2024 Dr Nadel looks forward to welcoming new patients.
