The British Heart Foundation Data Science Centre are gathering patient and public views on the most important areas of heart disease research – the results of this will help shape and prioritise cardiovascular research.

Almost 8 million people in the UK live with heart and circulatory disease and every three minutes someone dies from the condition. Advances in cardiovascular research therefore have enormous potential to improve the nation’s health as well as patient quality of life.

However, there are an endless range of potential research questions to explore. Research priorities help guide funding bodies, research groups and ethics committees in deciding which studies to support.

The British Heart Foundation Data Science Centre uses data to address some of the most pressing challenges in heart and circulatory health research and public input in our work is key to its success.

If you are a patient, or a member of the public, we want to find out what types of research are most important to you.
