Cardiovascular Research in Cambridge

In 2013, the University of Cambridge approved a new cross-School activity called Cardiovascular Strategic Research Initiative. This Initiative aims to transform Cambridge into a world-leading hub for cardiovascular research and is open to all cardiovascular researchers in Cambridge area. Our current mailing list reaches 500 staff and students across the University, affiliated research Institutes, hospitals, and companies.

Within the Cardiovascular SRI, there are two main research centres funded by the British Heart Foundation, and one funded by the NIHR. More information about these can be found by following the links below:

Looking forward, our research community will expand with the re-location of Papworth hospital (2018) and AstraZeneca global R&D (2018) to Cambridge. Additionally, we are raising funds to a dedicated Heart & Lung Research Institute (HLRI), expected to open in 2020.
