You may remember us from last year, when you voted for us and generously donated $20,000! Want to know where that went?
With your help, we are now ready to trial our coronary stents in humans. We have proved concretely that our stents, which we coat in bio-compatible materials using state of the art plasma-physics technology, work. Our stents last longer, and mean people will not have to rely on blood-thinning medication, with its damaging side effects, for the rest of their lives.
With your help, we are now at the point of patenting our groundbreaking discovery: a new class of nanoparticle that has the potential to revolutionise drug delivery and make treatments more effective for a wide range of diseases including heart disease, Alzheimer's and cancer.
With your help, we are about to publish the results of our unique work on spinning silk into replacement blood vessels.
Cardiovascular disease is the world’s biggest killer, and affects 2 out of every 3 Australian families. The Heart Research Institute’s research is ground-breaking, and life-saving.
Your vote and your donation this year will enable more breakthroughs in cutting-edge bio-engineering next year. Today's research is tomorrow's cure.
