Arteriosclerosis/Heart Faliure Translational Research Prize

Updated:Dec 10,2012

Sponsored by Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc

Please check back in February 2013 for application submission and deadline dates.

The Arteriosclerosis/Heart Failure Translational Research Prize recognizes outstanding translational research by early and mid-career independent nurse investigators in the area of arteriosclerosis and/or heart failure. The award provides support toward pilot or preliminary work, which will enhance the proposal for new and continued outside funding in the area of arteriosclerosis and/or heart failure.

For this award, translational research is the application of discoveries from basic biomedical and behavioral research toward diagnosing, treating or preventing human disease, with the ultimate goal of improving public health. Therefore, outcomes research (understanding end results of healthcare practices and interventions, including monitoring and quality improvement) is not relevant to this award. Further, this award is not for extending ongoing clinical research studies or the optimization of current clinical protocols.

2012 Winner: Misook Chung, PhD, RN
