Canadian entrepreneur and philanthropist Dr Victor Dahdaleh has made a £16 million gift to Cambridge institute dedicated to improving cardiovascular & lung health
The Victor Phillip Dahdaleh Heart and Lung Research Institute (HLRI) is home to the largest concentration of scientists and clinicians in heart and lung medicine in Europe. The Institute is a joint venture between Cambridge University and Royal Papworth Hospital and represents a major expansion of cardiovascular and respiratory research capacity.
It has the ambitious goal of identifying ten new potential treatments or diagnostic tests for heart and lung diseases within five years. It is located on Cambridge’s rapidly expanding Biomedical Campus, immediately adjacent to Royal Papworth Hospital.
The Victor Phillip Dahdaleh Heart and Lung Research Institute brings together population health, laboratory and clinical scientists, with NHS clinicians and patients, with the aim of improving outcomes for people with cardiovascular and lung diseases such as heart attacks, pulmonary hypertension, lung cancers, cystic fibrosis and acute respiratory distress syndrome.
