The Strategically Focused Research Network will focus on Heart Failure.
The AHA is interested in the science community exploring all aspects of heart failure, which can assist the AHA in reaching it's 2020 Goals and overall mission of building healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke.
A Network is comprised of three to four institutions, or Centers, working on three projects each that are focused on one strategic area.
To that end, the AHA pursues research from the basic, clinical and population sciences. This RFA will require that each submission have an overall application from the Center Director, as well as three proposals from project Principal Investigators in this specific area:
• One proposal addressing basic science discover in Heart
• One proposal addressing clinical science discovery in Heart
• One proposal addressing population science discover in Heart
A center application can compromise projects from more than one institution. The sponsoring institution will be determined by where the Center Director is located and will be charged with oversight and financial responsibilities of the Center as a whole. Applications should convey how these different areas of science will be integrated, both in their scientific discoveries and through joint team communication and integration.
