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 the 2011/12 financial year. 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 over 1,000 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.

Since 2008 we have been investing in Centres of Research Excellence at leading UK universities. These six Centres bring together top scientists from a number of disciplines to come up with exciting, innovative research projects that will help us beat heart disease.
