|About||We fund pioneering research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease - helping hearts near you. http://www.heartresearch.org.uk/|
Heart Research UK funds pioneering research into the causes, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of heart disease. Through medical research projects and community based awareness programmes we aim to not only develop the way heart disease is treated, but provide education and information to reduce the number of people affected by the UKs biggest killer.
We rely solely on donations and fundraising events, therefore have a packed diary which can be accessed on our website www.heartresearch.org.uk or find out more about volunteering at events or in our offices in Leeds and Birmingham by calling 0113 234 7474.
Heart Research UK is a visionary charity founded in 1967 by Mr David Watson, a working heart surgeon, who realised that patients were dying unnecessarily because of the lack of research into heart disease, especially surgical techniques.
Having funded six of the first eight successful UK heart transplants the charity leads the way funding ground breaking, medical research projects into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease.
Heart Research UK has been helping hearts near you for 50 years, funding ground-breaking medical research that benefits patients as soon as possible.
Over the last 50 years we have awarded over £24m to support medical research in universities and hospitals across the UK. We’ve also given over £1.7m for innovative community-based lifestyle projects that help people locally to have healthier, happier and longer lives.
Unique, for a national charity, we spend money where it is given, helping hearts near you.
