The Australian government, together with the National Heart Foundation, is announcing a further $12 million for research to improve treatment of people, including children, suffering cardiovascular disease and stroke.
This funding will be provided over four years, from the Medical Research Future Fund’s Cardiovascular Health Mission, to advance ground-breaking work on heart disease and stroke - the nation’s two biggest killers:
The National Stroke Foundation’s research aims to achieve a paradigm shift in acute stroke care for Australian children, greatly improving survival rates.
The Stroke Foundation will partner with the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute to design and implement a world-first national Paediatric Acute Code Stroke (PACS) protocol, using innovative decision support tools and advanced imaging technologies.
