Westmead Cardiology Research Fund

........supporting heart research at Westmead

Westmead Cardiology Research Fund offers you an opportunity to help sustain our heart research work. Recent collaborative work utilising sensitive imaging techniques has detected early evidence of heart damage in patients receiving cancer therapy.

The next phase of our research will examine additional techniques, to further refine the detection of heart damage and to monitor therapies to reduce heart damage.

We would be pleased to discuss with you our work and results, and explain how your contribution will assist our future studies.

All contributions to the Fund are acknowledged and are used solely to support our research.
