Heart Research UK logo

For over 50 years HRUK has funded pioneering and ground-breaking research projects in hospitals and universities across the UK to help treat, prevent and cure heart disease.

The Charity also helps teach and support the medical experts of today with expert Masterclasses and helps the experts of tomorrow by funding scholarships.

Heart Research UK was founded to help make surgery safer, and did just that by funding six of the first eight successful UK heart transplants. The charity continues to show that research works, helping people live healthier, happier and longer lives.
