Heart Research UK pledges over £500,000 for COVID-19 research
Given the overwhelming response to our new COVID-19 research grant, we have decided to fund three new research projects to investigate how COVID-19 affects the heart and circulatory system – an investment of over half a million pounds.
Research has shown that people with cardiovascular conditions, including high blood pressure, have a higher risk of developing severe COVID-19.
COVID-19 can also cause ‘new’ damage to the heart and blood vessels in people who have no pre-existing disease.
Heart Research UK’s new grant scheme was designed to fund pioneering research to investigate these links and improve outcomes for patients suffering from COVID-19 who may have underlying cardiovascular problems.
The grants have been awarded to Newcastle University, the University of Dundee and University of Glasgow.
