Heart disease is a leading cause of death around the world. Globally it accounts for more than 17 million deaths a year and this figure is on the rise. We are developing new strategies for predicting, preventing and treating the disease.
Our studies are focused on generating strong evidence to drive real change in practice and policy, such as the reducing the incidence of recurrent stroke or heart attack among cardiac patients. By initiating changes in clinical practice and government policy, we hope to redress the growing impact of these killer diseases.
