Research Grant Highlights

We want to make sure that we support the highest quality science and the best scientists. Each year, our expert Medical Review Panels meet to assess and select the best grant applications for research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease. These panels consist of cardiologists, surgeons and scientists with expertise and knowledge in relevant areas of cardiovascular disease. We also find independent, external peer reviewers from all over the world to help us assess the grant applications.

Heart Research UK is a national charity which spends its funding on activity across the country, which means what is raised locally is used to help hearts near you.

We can’t do this without you

Through pioneering research and accessible education, Heart Research UK aims to reduce the number of people developing and dying from heart disease, while improving and extending the lives of those affected.

As a charity, we can only do this with your help.

People with certain types of heart disease have a higher risk of developing serious complications from Covid-19 and there is evidence that the virus can cause damage to the heart.

We must continue to do all we can to prevent and treat heart disease.

To help us fund more research and education, please make a small donation to help ensure we can continue our work, now and in the future.
