Join us and turn donations into discoveries.

The BHF funds £100 million of cardiovascular research annually, and every pound of that investment is overseen by our Research Funds team. We ensure that donations to the BHF go to high quality research, and we support the UK cardiovascular research community to be the best it can be to win the fight for every heartbeat.

As the largest independent funder of cardiovascular research, the BHF has a track record of investing in groundbreaking work that has changed the face of treatment and care for people with heart disease. In Research Funds we are at the centre of our world-leading research portfolio, funding the best scientists at every stage of their career and investing in the buildings and facilities that they need.

Our busy team combines exceptional administrative skills with the specialist knowledge of researchers who have joined us from the lab. We manage approximately 600 applications each year for research grants into all aspects of cardiovascular disease, oversee 5 funding committees and track the progress of grants towards exciting discoveries. We provide leadership to the charity in spotting emerging scientific trends, opportunities and risks, and act as advisors to researchers from rising stars to renowned global experts. With us, you can make life-saving research possible.

What the team say

  • SubreenaResearch Advisor, Research Funds

    What did you do before?

    I came from the lab – I was a postdoctoral scientist at Imperial College London. When I decided to leave research I was really happy to have the opportunity to continue to contribute to scientific research by without being actually ‘at the bench’. At the BHF I’m involved in managing the processes by which applications for research funding are reviewed, and assessing the impact of BHF funded research.

    What’s the best thing about being part of the BHF?

    The people who work here are all dedicated, often having very personal reasons for wanting the BHF to be the best it can be. It creates a really positive working environment.

    What inspires you about your role?

    Making a difference to the researchers we support, enabling them to make breakthroughs in cardiovascular research.
