Heart Research Australia is dedicated to funding first-stage, innovative research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. Because this kind of research does not attract government funding, our work is powered by the generosity of our supporters.
We are proud to have invested over $27 million in heart research, with almost $2 million committed each year to new research grants, an amount that has been steadily growing thanks to the generosity of our supporters.
The research we fund, through the help of our supporters, has already shown positive results in the treatment of heart disease. For example one research project enabled life-saving technology and procedures to be put in place that reduced heart attack deaths at Royal North Shore Hospital from a staggering 30% to 8%.
