Enduring Hearts funds the most promising research being conducted to increase the longevity of transplanted human organs and related tissue transplants. Our grant awards specifically target research benefiting pediatric heart transplant recipients.
As a nonprofit organization, we work with our scientific advisory board to identify and award operating grants for research projects in organ transplantation to established members of academic staff at universities, transplant centers and research institutes.
At Enduring Hearts, we give priority to clinical research projects and new emerging technologies focused on understanding the cause, development and prevention of human transplantation diseases, including organ injury and rejection, viral infection and late graft deterioration.
