Supporting Research into Thrombosis
Thrombosis and pulmonary embolism (blood clots) are not uncommon and remain a global health issue, affecting thousands of people in the UK yet until Thrombosis UK (formerly known as Lifeblood: the thrombosis charity) was founded, there had been no lead independent body for thrombosis research in the UK.
Thrombosis UK continues to raise awareness of the need for research, and works with leading UK and international research institutions to inform and support on-going and new research.
Thanks to our supporters, Thrombosis UK currently assists research into multiple thrombosis studies, providing funding, generally given as seed money for small projects, but with your help, we are determined to achieve more and accelerate the progress being made in the fight against Thrombosis.
Annually, Thrombosis UK offers Research Grants and Travel Fellowships for healthcare professionals and scientists whose study will help improve the experience and outcomes of VTE patents or extend the understanding of thrombosis. Thrombosis UK cannot support projects that should be funded by the NHS.
