Heart Research AustraliaResearch Today. A cure Tomorrow.
Heart Research Australia raises funds for research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease and associated medical conditions.
Our goal is to reduce the devastating impact heart disease has on the community.
Our focus is seed-funding for cardiac researchers to investigate new areas. The aim is to make their work competitive for grants from national bodies such as the National Health and Medical Research Council.
Learn more about our work
Heart Research Australia also funds:
Two academic Chairs of Cardiology, in association with the University of Sydney: the Chair of Cardiology (Professor Helge Rasmussen) and Chair of Preventative Cardiology (Professor Geoffrey Tofler)
Several PhD scholarships in heart research
Infrastructure, such as specialist research equipment.
Specialist research support staff
Rehabilitation and education
Through several continuing programs we help cardiac patients develop and maintain better health and well-being.
Linking with our community
Heart Research Australia depends entirely on the financial support of the community: individuals, community groups, trusts and foundations, and corporate organisations.
To attract support we undertake cost-effective and appropriate fundraising activities. This in turn supports researchers in their quest for novel ways to reduce cardiovascular risk and morbidity.
Through our newsletter, community events and other activities we also promote awareness of the urgent need to support heart research.
