“Up to 40 per cent of people who have a heart attack die on the spot. To make a difference we need to prevent heart attacks instead of treating them.”
    — Professor Karlheinz Peter

Researchers, led by Professor Peter, have been developing a new technology that could help doctors identify who is at risk of a heart attack and prevent them before it's too late.

Please donate today to help progress it to clinical trials and make it available in hospitals not just in Australia, but right across the world.

With your support, the ticking time bomb of unstable plaque really could be diffused within the next few years.

It will cost an estimated $6 million to develop and test our new technology within 4 years. Your donation today will help progress the current alpha prototype to a completed beta prototype in the next 12–18 months.
