Welcome To the Heart Failure
Clinical Research Network

Heart failure is an important public health problem, and one of the leading causes of hospitalization in the United States. With the increasingly aging population, the scope and cost to society associated with this condition will progressively rise.

The Heart Failure Clinical Research Network
(HFN) is a clinical research initiative funded by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) with the aim of improving our understanding of the condition and to discover innovative treatment options. The Network provides a unique platform for collaborative research by bringing together many elite centers across North America.
