About us

We’re a hub of expertise drawn from a variety of clinical and research areas, all relevant to heart health, and in particular, the use of drugs, devices and other clinical interventions to treat them.

Since 2003 we’ve improved the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of chronic and acute heart conditions by undertaking complex and diverse research, including lab-based studies, clinical trials, clinical registries, health services research and health economic analyses.
