Our Vision

A successful and vibrant Research Institute built on well-funded and internationally recognised research with outstanding training and learning opportunities.

Our Institute

We have clinical academics & researchers based across Glasgow using state-of-the art facilities in the BHF Glasgow Cardiovascular Research Centre, West Medical & Davidson Buildings at Gilmorehill Campus & the sites in the Western Infirmary & Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

Our research strengths have been integrated into substantial, well-resourced thematic programmes that build on the strengths of individual, clinical and non-clinical principal investigators.  Which create added value through basic, translational and clinical research frameworks.  Our strength is in identifying and designing novel therapeutic strategies that will lead to clinical trials.
