BHF-NIHR partnership set to fast-track coronavirus research

BHF have joined forces with the National Institute of Health research (NIHR) to launch a nationwide research initiative to better understand why people with heart and circulatory diseases are at higher risk and often suffer more severely with coronavirus (Covid-19).

The initiative, which builds on an existing partnership between our organisations, will provide a new framework for the rapid set-up and delivery of urgent, high impact Covid-19 research projects across the UK.

With support from the British Cardiovascular Society, the BHF Data Science Centre and Health Data Research UK, we are now calling for applications to establish flagship projects.
