Our Research

Imagine if you could help find the cure for a life threatening illness that affects the hearts of thousands of Irish people every year?

The Irish Heart Foundation is part of a worldwide movement that’s leading the fight against heart disease and stroke.

We have been funding groundbreaking research projects for more than four decades driving positive advances to make life better for heart patients and their families across Ireland.

In recent years, we have established a number of bursaries funded by public or corporate donations, to promote original innovative work in the area of cardiovascular disease which is not easily funded by other sources.

 

Ground-breaking research project: CONVINCE

Currently we have committed €670,000 over five years to the completely new and ground-breaking research project CONVINCE that will help prevent thousands of people dying from stroke – and improve the quality of life for thousands more.

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, our researchers are finding answers and helping to change the lives of generations of heart patients today and for years to come.

 

Please join the fight against heart disease and stroke by donating here or by leaving a gift in your will.

If you are a researcher and would like more information about research bursaries please contact Cora Lavin on +353 1 6685001 or email her directly.
