Do you study cardiovascular health?

We invite you to contribute to the advancement of women’s cardiovascular health research. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death among women worldwide, yet there is a significant knowledge gap in understanding women-specific risk factors, symptoms, and outcomes due to research primarily focusing on men.

To address this gap, the Global Cardiovascular Research Funders Forum (GCRFF) is seeking information from the international research community on the most urgent needs for women’s cardiovascular health research. The Heart Foundation of New Zealand is sharing this as a member of the GCRFF.

You can access the RFI and submit your responses here by 15 January 2024. Your expertise and perspectives will guide the GCRFF’s efforts to support ground-breaking research and make a positive impact on women's lives.

One year ago, Neurofanos was announced as the overall winner of the 2022 Velocity $100k Challenge and the entrepreneurial journey for this multidisciplinary team of biomedical engineers, neurosurgeons, researchers, and academics was launched. Their winning innovation is a revolutionary AI-driven tool capable of measuring and analysing the structure of the brain in real time.

An initiative called Piki Te Ora is piloting remote patient monitoring (RPM) with 60 participants in four communities across the motu using a newly developed app to gather and share their health information. Te Whatu Ora and Te Aka Whai Ora are partnering on the project to support people with long-term health conditions to stay well in the community and empower participants to take an active role in managing their health.

Research Acceleration Programme (RAP)

The RAP funding rounds have now closed for 2023. The 2024 calendar will be released toward the end of the year.
