Fifteen researchers in Göteborg are getting 13 million SEK from the Swedish Heart-Lung Foundation for developing methods and treatments that can help people with heart, lung and vascular diseases. All told, the Heart-Lung Foundation is disbursing 153 million kronor this year to researchers all over the country. “The researchers are constantly pushing the envelope to find new methods of preventing and treating these serious conditions, and the research grant from the Heart-Lung Foundation considerably increases their chances of succeeding," said Staffan Josephson, General Secretary of the Swedish Heart-Lung Foundation.

Thanks to its highly successful fundraising this year, the Heart-Lung Foundation is able to give grants totalling 153 million SEK to the country´s leading heart, lung and vascular disease researchers. This is an increase of 13 million over last year. The funds are earmarked for research that may save lives and provide better treatment for people affected by conditions such as myocardial infarction, heart failure, stroke and COPD.

The Swedish Heart-Lung Foundation was founded in 1904 to fight tuberculosis (TB) and today raises and distributes money for research and provides information about heart and lung diseases. It is entirely dependent on donations from private individuals and companies.

The Göteborg researchers who get to share the 13 million SEK are Michael Fu, Gerdt Riise, Lennart Bergfeldt, Pernilla Glader, Anna-Karin Olin, Anders Jeppsson, Gregor Guron, Elmir Omerovic, Göran Dellgren, Anne de Wahl Granelli, Bo Lundbäck, Jan Borén, Annika Rosengren, Kristina Bry and Mikael Dellborg.
