Research Grant Funding

Why we need research

Aortic dissection is frequently perceived as an uncommon condition with a poor prognosis that only a select group of medical professionals can treat. When someone has an acute aortic dissection, they have a 50% chance of survival before they get to hospital, and by 2050, the number of people with this problem is expected to double. Every year, the same number of people get an aortic dissection as get a brain tumour, and 7% of people who have a cardiac arrest outside of the hospital do so because of an aortic dissection.

While only a few medical specialists can treat patients with acute dissections, a wide range of healthcare professionals may see patients who have an aortic dissection or are at risk. Often aortic dissection patients are seen by cardiac and vascular surgeons, pre-hospital physicians, emergency care, acute medicine, cardiology, and general practitioners.

 

A key to improving the outcomes for patients with aortic dissection is through research and pathway development.

The Aortic Dissection Charitable Trust is involved in the development of the strategy to support aortic dissection research in the UK and Ireland as well as providing pump-priming research grants with an overall goal of improving patient care, saving lives, and making life better for people with aortic dissection. Those who care for patients with aortic dissection as part of a multidisciplinary team or as researchers are encouraged to apply.

Grants are made to individuals and research teams working within the NHS (UK), Health Service Executive (Republic of Ireland) or a university registered with the appropriate regulator in the UK or Republic of Ireland. Applications for the 2023 round of funding will be open in the spring of 2023. If you are interested in knowing more, please join our research panel to be notified in due course.
