Grants to USA research institutions to support cardiovascular-based studies related to COVID-19/Coronavirus. Funding is intended for research that will help investigators understand the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular pathogenesis, diagnosis, prevention, clinical manifestations, clinical management (including critical care management), and social behaviors that can lead to dissemination, containment, and complications of COVID-19.

In addition, to ensure rapid dissemination of results to the medical and research communities, one grant recipient will be selected to establish the COVID-19 Coordinating Center. This center will coordinate communication among the awardees, help establish collaborations where appropriate, receive results from all awardees and serve to coordinate dissemination of all findings resulting from this mechanism.

For applicants interested in also serving as the AHA COVID-19 Coordinating Center, an additional narrative  will be required, describing the PI’s experience in multi-institutional collaborative research, data management, rapid and accurate dissemination of very contemporary research and clinical information, as well as institutional infrastructure supportive of this need.
