Cardiovascular Disease is indiscriminate, it does not spare any race, age, social class or gender. According to the World Health Organisation, cardiovascular disease continues to be the number one cause of death and suffering globally. More people die annually from cardiovascular diseases than from any other cause.
The aim of the Magdi Yacoub Institute is to improve the lives of the many people affected by heart disease and reduce the number of people suffering and dying worldwide.
Although we have made great inroads since the research centre was established in 1980, there is a lot more work to be done in understanding the mechanisms of cardiovascular disease and developing new treatments.
Throughout my career I have seen the negative impact that heart disease has on individuals and their families. It is our mission at the Heart Science Centre to do everything we can to use science and innovation to offer hope to humanity.
This is where we reach out for your support, as we know heart research costs millions but doing no research costs far more in terms of loss of life and human suffering.
Thank you for helping us in achieving our shared vision,
With my very best wishes
Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub FRS, OM
