Other information:

"This charity is dedicated to saving lives by developing better treatments and cures for heart conditions. As part of this work we support essential research using cells grown in a laboratory, computer models, and human volunteers. Where these are not feasible, we fund research using animals.

When our researchers do use animals, all work is carried out in line with strict Home Office guidelines.

The research community is constantly developing new techniques to help us use fewer animals or non-animal models. Our scientists carry out as much of their research as possible on human volunteers, cells, or computers.

However, completely replacing all animals in research is not yet possible. There is no alternative method that can reproduce the complicated working of our hearts and circulatory systems".
