The Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation aims to create a world without heart and vascular disease. Our efforts are focused on improving the cardiovascular health of individuals and communities through innovative research and education.

Our bold vision of a world without heart and vascular disease fuels our efforts to conduct clinical research into devices, treatments and methods of prevention. We are dedicated to the dissemination of our findings through presentations and professional education. And we are leading the way in population health and prevention, as best exemplified by our landmark Hearts Beat Back: The Heart of New Ulm Project.

As an independent nonprofit organization, we are able to move the study approval process along faster than other organizations. And because of our close relationship with the Minneapolis Heart Institute®, which treats a large number of patients, we are able to fill research studies and begin work more quickly. These cutting-edge studies, along with our agility, give research participants new options not available elsewhere.

At MHIF, we work to improve the cardiovascular health of individuals and communities through innnovative research and education. We continually hear from patients and families whose lives have been touched by our efforts, and who are grateful for the difference we have made in their health and their lives. That is our most significant and most important sign of progress.

Examples of MHIF's recent accomplishments include the first-in-U.S. implant of the Tendyne Bioprosthetic Mitral Valve, the new prevention model explored in our Hearts Beat Back: The Heart of New Ulm Project, the groundbreaking work performed in our Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) Center, our unique focus on women's heart health, our one-of-a-kind research internship and countless others. We are dedicated to innovative, life-changing and life-saving research and education, and our findings are put into practice throughout Minnesota, the United States and the world.
