Bristol Heart Institute
Leading research in the battle against heart disease
Bristol Heart Institute is a world-leading centre for translational cardiovascular research and the leading academic cardiac surgery centre in the UK.
The Bristol Heart Institute specialises in preventing, predicting, detecting, reducing and treating cardiovascular disease, bringing together scientists and clinicians from across the University and the NHS in Bristol, and training the next generation of cardiovascular scientists and clinical academics.
We harness the expertise of Bristol's translational science community and benefit from close proximity to outstanding medical facilities, such as the £61M Bristol Heart Institute Clinical Facility.
In this way, we make the journey from bench to bedside, from scientist to patient, in our fight against heart disease, still the UK's number one killer today.
