Welcome to the Projects page.
The NIHR Cardiovascular Healthcare Technology Co-operative (HTC) works to support and enable the development and adoption of new technologies and techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. We regularly evaluate our key focus areas, identify areas of unmet need and work with clinicians, researchers and companies to formulate projects to address the areas of unmet need.
To meet our aims the HTC has supported researchers and clinicians by providing small amounts of funding to carry out small scale investigations into new ideas that could impact patient wellbeing. The HTC staff continues to provided expertise and assistance to larger projects and projects with pilot data enabling these to progress by accessing more substantial funding sources.
The HTC has supported the development of a number of new technologies, products and approaches to help those suffering from cardiovascular disease and improve their quality of life. The left hand side column shows the activities that the HTC has funded and supported. Please click on a project to find out more.
