Enduring Hearts & ISHLT Longevity Research Award

The research focus for Enduring Hearts is to improve longevity of, and quality of life for, pediatric heart transplant recipients, and ultimately reduce and eliminate pediatric heart disease. A part of ISHLT's mission is to award research grants and establish endowments for the study of heart and lung transplantation and end-stage heart and lung disease. Together, our organizations have joined forces to develop the ISHLT/Enduring Hearts Transplant Longevity Research Grant, to achieve these missions. Grants will be made for research proposals that have a high likelihood of being translated into clinical practice within five years and those that have relevance to or directly involve pediatric transplant recipients and/or their families.

Enduring Hearts & AHA Translational Research Award

Enduring Hearts (EH) and The American Heart Association (AHA) share common priorities and interests in investing in biomedical research. Together, AHA and EH have established this jointly funded Request for Proposals (RFP) for the AHA/EH Translational Research Awards in Pediatric Heart Transplantation (PHT). EH was founded in 2013 with a mission to fund research to increase longevity and improve the quality of life for children with transplanted hearts. In collaboration with its partners, founder and donors, EH has invested over $10 million for ˜ 60 investigator-initiated novel projects making it the largest nonprofit funded solely dedicated to pediatric heart transplant research. The AHA was founded in 1924 and its mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. The AHA has invested more than $5 billion in research, making it the largest nonprofit funder of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular research outside the federal government.
