The Heart Research Institute focuses on
the early detection, prevention and reversal
of heart disease 

According to the World Health Organisation 17 million people die every year from heart disease related illnesses worldwide.  Alarmingly, the disease occurs in our teenage years, or even younger, but most people only find out they have a problem when they suffer a life threatening heart attack or stroke.

Our work focuses on the early changes that eventually lead to blood vessel hardening and heart disease by examining the influence of gender, ethnic background, life-style, genetics, obesity, age and other factors.  We hope to develop a simple test to diagnose the early stages of the disease. This will revolutionise the way we treat heart disease and potentially prevent millions of deaths worldwide.
