Are You Up for the ‘Cardio’ Challenge?


SVS members who are researchers and clinicians have an opportunity to win $5,000 for study hypotheses in cardiovascular research.

The American Heart Association and PCORI (Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute) have announced a ‘crowdsourcing’ challenge, asking researchers and clinicians to suggest research questions that address difficult challenges identified by patients with cardiovascular diseases. Proposals should focus on questions that can be answered through comparative clinical effectiveness research with a precision medicine approach.

Submissions are due by Oct. 6. Four winners will each receive a $5,000 cash prize.
