About Our Research
Diseases of the heart are the No. 1 killer in America, and stroke is the No. 4 killer. The American Heart Association strongly believes that learning more about these diseases is the best way to reduce disability and death. That's why research is an association-wide priority
Research grants and fellowships are offered in summer and winter. A grant is an award of funds to cover the expenses necessary to conduct research. A fellowship is an award to support an individual who intends to pursue a scientific research career.
|Peer Review Peer review committees provide a critical science review of research applications according to established AHA Standards. These committees are made up of impartial members who are competent to judge and grade research projects.||Awards Management|
