Dr Moeke (Ngāti Porou) has a medical research background and carried out research into the relationship between inflammation and atherosclerosis at the Heart Research Institute in Sydney, before returning to New Zealand to investigate the inflammatory component of gout. He is also looking at cardiovascular disease risk markers in the blood of people with gout and high serum urate to try to understand why those with gout may be at greater risk of cardiovascular disease.
