Welcome to the Heart Research Institute

For over 20 years, The Heart Research Institute has been one of Australia’s leading research organisations working to detect, prevent and treat heart disease.


Through our research, The Heart Research Institute has made significant findings that have changed the way we live with and treat Australia’s number one killer.


Our scientists are working across a field of research areas to identify factors which contribute to an increased risk of heart disease. Understanding the underlying causes of heart disease is the key to finding a solution.
