AHA Accepting LOIs for New Strategically Focused Research Network

Letters of Intent are being accepted until Tuesday, February 9, 2021, for applications to the American Heart Association’s Disparities in Cardio-Oncology Strategically Focused Research Network. Letters of Intent are required in order to be considered for an invitation to submit a full proposal.

Cardio-oncology represents the intersection of cancer and cardiovascular disease. It has emerged as a new research area as a result of the evolution in cancer therapies which have improved prognosis for many cancer patients. Cardiovascular complications from cancer therapies represent an important challenge for many cancer patients at the time of treatment and during survivorship. To address critical deficiencies related to disparities in cardio-oncology, the AHA has prioritized funding research that increases understanding of the etiology, pathophysiology, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease among cancer patients and cancer survivors from diverse populations.

An network is comprised of three to five institutions, or centers, working on projects focused on one strategic area that can assist the AHA in reaching its overall mission to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. Please visit the Disparities in Cardio-Oncology Strategically Focused Research Network RFA page for full details.

Invited full proposals will be due by Tuesday, March 30, 2021. The awards will begin on July 1, 2021.
