Researchets at Edinburgh University have been awarded almost £240,000 by the British Heart Foundation to proceed their work in stem cell research.

The study aims to identify the part of the body that has the greatest potential for harvesting stem cells so that diseased blood vessels can be regenerated.

According to the BHF associate medical director, Jeremy Pearson that, this is an exciting round of research grants that will delve into new areas of heart research, and take us closer to finding new ways of understanding, preventing, diagnosing and treating heart disease.

We really hope that in near future the combined effort of BHF and Scientists of Edinbugh will be able to tackle the world’s biggest killer disease.
