In our efforts to redress the lack of funding for vascular disease, we have ambitious goals for our research.

Many of our projects funded are published, which supports our aim to push the boundaries in vascular health and underlines our desire to effect a reduction in suffering from vascular disease.

To give you a flavour, here is a selection of research projects funded by the Circulation Foundation that has been published:
