Transforming the strategic landscape for CVD research in the Liverpool City Region

Transforming Liverpool’s heart health

The Liverpool City Region has one of the highest rates of cardiac illness in the UK, with Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) accounting for a fifth of all premature deaths.

In 2019, the Liverpool Centre for Cardiovascular Science (LCCS) – a strategic research collaboration between Liverpool Health Partners, Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital, Liverpool John Moores University, and the University of Liverpool – was established to address the region’s heart health needs. The LCCS has since secured over £1M of external funding and has produced over 300 affiliated papers.

We strive to translate education and research from ‘bench to bedside’ to improve the health of our population – one heart at a time. Together, we’re tackling the challenges and inequalities of poor cardiovascular health and allowing more people to live longer, healthier lives.
