About the organisation
Heart Research Australia’s goal is to reduce the devastating impact of heart disease on families and the community. Our focus is seed-funding for cardiac researchers to investigate new areas of research. First-stage funding allows researchers to turn their innovative, ‘out of the notebook’ ideas into reality.
Heart Research Australia also provides scholarships for PhD students whose research work is supervised by leading cardiac researchers. In this way, the organisation plays an integral role in nurturing and developing some of Australia’s most promising heart scientists.
Senior researchers are also practicing cardiologists, which puts them in the best position to identify research opportunities and translate discoveries ‘on the bench’ into benefits for patients ‘at the bedside’. The breakthroughs researchers make, contribute to reducing the deadly impact of heart disease in Australia and around the world.
