We support scientific and academic research into pulmonary hypertension in multiple ways, providing grants and other backing to both individuals and partner organisations.
Please scroll down to find out more about some of the cutting edge trials and studies we are currently supporting, or have supported over the last few years.
We’re working with researchers to investigate the impact of PH on individuals and their caregivers, and whether ‘self-compassion’ can be a helpful way of coping.
The SPHERe trial is testing whether home exercise programmes, supervised by experts, are effective for people with pulmonary hypertension.
We’re helping Cambridge researchers understand what matters most to patients when it comes to clinical trials – and by sharing your thoughts in our collaborative survey, you will help to shape the design of a promising new trial known as ‘StratosPHere’.
Researchers in the Netherlands are seeking funding to create a solution for heart failure by developing a pioneering soft robotic heart – and in May 2021 we gathered the opinions of the PH community to help them with their bid.
This study aims to investigate the genetic causes of PAH, and how genetic variation affects outcome and response to treatment.
This study, led by the Royal Free Hospital, aims to discover whether looking at existing clinical data derived from people living with PH might help speed up diagnosis in the future.
This survey was conducted in collaboration with Professor Nick Morrell, British Heart Foundation Professor of Cardiopulmonary Medicine at the University of Cambridge.
