Vital Research Funding in Northern Ireland

The Northern Ireland Chest, Heart and Stroke Association is offering grants, aiming to help combat the illnesses which take 2 out of 3 lives. The grants are only available to projects based in Northern Ireland.

As well as the £125,000 going to chest disease research and heart illness research, and the £76,000 going to other study areas, there is £40,000 going to training to help health professionals contribute to the quality of research.The charity’s chief executive, Andrew Dougal, said: “We are looking for proposals from researchers in our hospitals and universities offering the quickest possible benefit for patients.”

The Northern Ireland Chest, Heart and Stroke Association has also recently appointed a Woman’s Heart Nurse whose job will be to provide health checks, advice and support in the community – particularly in deprived areas.

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
