Winter 2014 Strategically Focused Prevention Research Network

Updated:Aug 5,2014

The intent of the Strategically Focused Prevention Research Network is to support a collaboration of basic, clinical and population researchers from different disciplines whose collective efforts will lead to new approaches, to improve the prevention of cardiovascular disease and stroke.

There is a continuum of prevention research from primordial (the prevention of risk factors) to primary (the prevention of CVD and stroke), to secondary (the prevention of recurrent disease and complications) prevention, which can bring together multidisciplinary and cross-disciplinary teams.

The applications for this network will be peer reviewed by experts in their respective fields.  Peer review will consist of a two-phase review with a reverse site visit in late spring.
