About us

Since 1967, we’ve invested over £27m in life-saving medical research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease.

We know research works, but there’s a lot more that needs to be done.

We’ve invested over £2.5m in community projects all over the country, aimed at increasing the heart health of the nation, and our healthy messaging has reached over 4m people already this year.

Heart Research UK has funded major breakthroughs, including the invention of pioneering artificial heart valves, funded six of the first eight successful UK heart transplants, and funded the implantation of the world’s first permanent artificial heart.

We cannot do this without your support and every penny will go into continuing to fund life-saving medical research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease.

£8 Would buy two packs of ECG electrodes to be used in research into risk of sudden cardiac death. £25 Would fund the use of a ‘flow cytometer’ for one hour to analyse cells in the search for naturally-occurring chemicals that can help repair damaged hearts. £40 Will support a research project into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease.
