Chris asks if the Government are funding our appeal.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your question.

The BHF – and the Mending Broken Hearts Appeal - relies wholly on public support. But we have always worked closely with Government funded research organisations like the Medical Research Council (MRC) to ensure the best use of resources. The MRC have also made regenerative medicine a priority.We’ve already jointly funded (with the MRC) three groups around the UK – at Cambridge, Imperial College and Manchester – to study different aspects of stem cell behaviour. We see this as a prelude to our Mending Broken Hearts Appeal.
