American Heart Association Call for Proposals

Posted on January 8, 2014 at 3:33pm


AHA is accepting applications for research funding for awards that will begin on July 1, 2014. Deadlines vary for affiliate and national programs and for certain award programs. Please see our funding opportunities page for program details and deadlines.

Strategically Focused Research Network - NEW PROGRAM
The Strategically Focused Research Network for this deadline will focus on PREVENTION.

The AHA is interested in the science community exploring all aspects of prevention, which can assist the AHA in reaching its 2020 Goals and overall mission of building healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke. 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:

  • One proposal addressing basic science discovery in prevention
  • One proposal addressing clinical science discovery in prevention
  • One proposal addressing population science discovery in prevention

A Center application can comprise projects from more than one institution, as long as there is a named sponsoring institution, where the Center Director is located and will manage the oversight and financial responsibilities. Thus, applications should convey how these different areas of science will collaborate, both in their science discoveries and through joint team communication and integration. This program is offered by the AHA National Research Program.

To read the full Request for Applications please visit our Strategically Focused Prevention Research Network page.

Full Application Deadline: Tuesday, February 4, 2014 5:00 PM Central Time
