BHF Pioneering Research

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) funds pioneering research which has helped to transform the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions. The BHF’s Mending Broken Hearts Appeal is funding researchers to find a cure for heart failure - a devastating and incurable condition which affects over 750,000 people across the UK.

Medical Research funded by the British Heart Foundation
The Mending Broken Hearts Appeal is funding research that could make it possible for the heart to heal itself after a heart attack – just like broken bones do.  At the University of Cambridge Professor Richard Farndale and his team are working to produce a ‘patch’ using the patient’s own cells that will strengthen the heart muscle damaged by a heart attack, and help it beat strongly again.
