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
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.
