Support for Researchers
Request a Research Grant
When it comes to myocarditis, there’s still a lot to learn. To help support research related to all forms of the disease, the Myocarditis Foundation developed the Myocarditis Research Grant Program. Chosen on an annual basis, this grant provides salary support for one year of full-time basic, clinical or translational research related to the cause or treatment of myocarditis. In addition to the research grant program, the Myocarditis Foundation has also partnered with the American Heart Association (AHA) to establish a postdoctoral fellowship program.
