How our research is saving lives
The Heart Research Institute’s mission is to prevent death and suffering from cardiovascular disease through an understanding of the biological processes that cause atherosclerosis and thrombosis, the major underlying causes of most heart attacks and strokes.
Although we have made great inroads in the 30 years since the Heart Research Institute was established, the job is far from complete. Cardiovascular disease remains the UK's - and the world's - number one killer.
Today, our work and mission are more important than ever.
