Who we are

The Magdi Yacoub Research Network (MYRN), formerly QAL Advanced Cardiovascular Network, was established in September 2008 by Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub as a ‘social profit’ entity.

MYRN’s strength rests not only on the professional expertise and commitment of its own staff but, under the direction of Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub, MYRN is uniquely placed to bring together exceptional clinicians, researchers, established institutions and professional managers from around the world to contribute to the achievement of its mission.

MYRN is based in the UK, but operates predominantly in countries with a high incidence of cardiovascular disease, including the Middle East and Africa.
