About the Magdi Yacoub Institute

The Magdi Yacoub Institute is a medical research facility which was established in 1980 by Professor Sir Magdi
Yacoub FRS, OM. The aim of the Magdi Yacoub Institute is to improve the lives of the many people affected by heart disease and reduce the number of people suffering and dying worldwide. Although we have made great inroads since the research facility was established in 1980, there is a lot more work to be done in understanding the mechanisms of cardiovascular disease and developing new treatments.

The Institute attracts scientist and clinicians from across the globe and supports the development of young scientists by providing access to facilities and training for PhD students, undergraduates and work experience students alongside senior scientists and early career investigators.

The Institute works closely with research partners at the Aswan Heart Centre, with whom it has a number of joint projects and grants. The UK and Egyptian teams work jointly on a number of collaborative projects. The Magdi
Yacoub Institute also has close ties with The National Heart & Lung Institute at Imperial College London, The Royal Brompton and Harefield Trust and Oxford University.

The Institute’s Impact

The Institute’s work extends beyond immediate medical care, contributing significantly to the broader fields of scientific research and medical education. By fostering innovation and training the next generation of medical professionals, the Foundation ensures a sustainable and far-reaching impact on global health.

In conclusion, the fundraising event at the Royal College of Music was more than just an elegant evening; it was a powerful demonstration of collective goodwill and support for a cause that truly changes lives. The funds raised will further empower the Sir Magdi Yacoub Foundation to continue its essential work, bringing world-class cardiac care to those who need it the most. Deborah Bonetti, director of the Foreign Press Association helped to promote the wonderful event.
