The Heart Research Institute is a not-for-profit, independent research organisation that was established in 1989 as a joint Bicentennial initiative of the Federal and New South Wales Governments, the National Heart Foundation of Australia, and a number of major corporations.
With strong links to the Sydney of University and the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, we focus on identifying the way in which cells and molecules in blood vessels work in order to better understand how heart disease develops.
Our teams of scientists work across a range of research areas to find new ways of detecting, treating and preventing heart disease in our community.
There are nine scientific groups at The Heart Research Institute, with each group conducting research into a specific aspect of cardiovascular disease. Our scientist are organised into the following groups...
CLINICAL RESEARCH GROUP
FREE RADICAL GROUP
GENE REGULATION GROUP
LIPID RESEARCH GROUP
NUTRITION & METABOLISM GROUP
