The Myocarditis Foundation and AHA Partner for Second Year in a Row for Research Grant Funding

The Myocarditis Foundation has partnered with the American Heart Association to co-sponsor a two-year research fellowship grant, to be awarded to an individual working to advance the understanding of the diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of myocarditis.  Applications are open on May 15th, 2013 and the grant will be awarded in December of 2013.

This will be the Myocarditis Foundation’s second cosponsored grant with AHA.  In December of 2012, the Myocarditis Foundation cosponsored a grant with AHA, awarded to Brian Avanzino of the University of California Davis for his research entitled: “Regulation of Cardiovirulent Picornaviral Protein Synthesis”.

The research preformed by these talented researchers is what ultimately saves lives from myocarditis.  It is with their efforts that better diagnostic procedures are found, improved treatment protocols are discovered, and ultimately, ways to prevent myocarditis from occurring are revealed.

Thank you to each and every individual who has donated and supported the Myocarditis Foundation; your donations further our research program and saves lives from being taken from myocarditis.

Applications will be open on May 15th, 2013.  For application information, please visit AHA’s website.
