The Hypertophic Cardiomyopathy
Research Foundation

Supporting Research at
St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital

Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) is an inherited heart disease that causes thickening of the heart muscle of the left ventricle which is the main pumping chamber of the heart. Indeed, though Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy is a scientific and probably unfamiliar name, it is a serious health problem, as families affected by the condition know very well.

We solicit contributions to fund HCM research at St. Lukes-Roosevelt Hospital Center. Our work focuses on efforts to:

  • Reduce, prevent, and eventually eliminate the risk of sudden death from HCM.
  • Understand how HCM causes patient symptoms.
  • Find new treatments to relieve symptoms and improve patients' quality of life.
  • Identify individuals with HCM and those who are likely to develop it.
