We are the single biggest independent funder
of cardiovascular research in the UK – from new discoveries about
how the heart develops in the womb, to developing the treatments
that could mend broken hearts in the future.
Thanks to the generous donations of our supporters, we invested
more than £88 million in research in 2011. We fund
scientists at more than 50 different research
centres in the UK - from Bristol to Belfast,
Cardiff to Cambridge, and Edinburgh to Essex.
We are funding hundreds of researchers on around 1,200
projects. All aim to find new, better treatments for
people with heart and circulatory disease, or develop new ways
to better prevent or diagnose it.
