Registered Charity No: 1044821 (England & Wales). 



Heart Research UK is the charity dedicated to your heart. We invest in pioneering medical research, ground-breaking training and education and inspire communities to improve their heart health for themselves. They are things we are proud to have done for over 50 years.

We paid for six of the first eight successful UK heart transplants and were involved in the development of other techniques that we now take for granted such as replacement heart valves and angioplasty. We always prioritise research which aims to benefit patients as soon as possible.

We have a particular focus on research which helps develop new technologies or uses technology in a new way to benefit patients. This includes ways to speed up cardiac MRI to reduce stress for babies born with congenital heart disease and an award winning heart simulator which will accelerate the development of heart assist devices.

We know research works, but you can help us make it work faster with a gift in your Will to Heart Research UK.
