The Children's Heart Foundation has issued a call for research proposals focused on clinical pediatric cardiology, basic science, and the advancement of surgical techniques.
Grants of up to $100,000 per year for a maximum of two years will be awarded for new research in the areas of molecular genetics/biochemistry, devices/procedural research (catheterization and surgical), and long-term care of children with congenital heart defects as they become adults.
The foundation's medical advisory board will review proposals by late fall 2017, with those recommended for a grant receiving their awards in December.
To be eligible, investigators must be affiliated with an educational institution or nonprofit organization considered tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
