The Heart Foundation supports a large and diverse research program devoted to unraveling the causes of heart disease at a genetic and molecular level, improving methods of early detection, and developing and testing new preventive and therapeutic strategies.
The Heart Foundation is currently providing vital financial support for the P. K. Shah Laboratory affiliated with the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute, Department of Medicine and Oppenheimer Atherosclerosis Research Center. This laboratory focuses on identifying novel molecular mechanisms and pathways leading to inflammation and atherosclerosis (plaque build-up), and developing therapies to prevent, stabilize and reverse it. Current research projects include:
