Award Amount: $681,819 for a three-year project and 10% indirect costs
Application Due Date: June 1, 2020
The American Heart Association and Enduring Hearts share common priorities and interests in investing in biomedical research. Together, they have established this jointly funded request for applications for Research Awards in Pediatric Heart Transplantation.
These awards provide support for investigators who are actively conducting research directly related to improving the life expectancy and quality of life of Pediatric Heart Transplant Recipients. This funding opportunity will further these areas of focus by offering competitive research grants in basic, clinical, population, and/or translational research via Collaborative Sciences Awards.Research Priorities:
- Evidence-based strategies for improving treatment adherence
- Early and accurate identification of acute cellular and antibody-mediated rejection and cardiac allograft vasculopathy, including the development of accurate non-invasive methods and strategies for surveillance
- Studies on the causes, prevention, and treatment of cardiac allograft vasculopathy strategies to improve the viability of donor hearts, the development of novel immunotherapies by the identification of novel targets, by improving the side-effect profiles of immunotherapies, and/or by improving methods for monitoring the level of immunosuppression.
