The Oxford British Heart Foundation Centre of Research Excellence (Oxford BHF CRE) is a network of researchers across Oxford, underpinned by a grant from the BHF. Research across the Oxford BHF CRE covers the entire cardiovascular research spectrum, from discovery science through to clinical and population health research. The BHF grant provides the opportunity for funding schemes including pump priming awards, research fellowships, collaboration awards and development of cardiovascular research facilities, alongside networking events including an annual research symposium and ‘emerging theme’ meetings.
