Research Grant Program

In recent years we have funded research projects relating to mental health and exercise in patients with and at risk for aortic dissection, priorities identified by the Aortic Dissection Collaborative for Patient-Centered Research at priorities of the aortic dissection patient community.

We welcome applications from academia and industry for projects that have the potential to make significant impact on clinical care and quality of life for people with or at risk for thoracic aortic dissection. Formal funding opportunities are posted here, however please contact us with proposals at any time.

Funded Grants

We fund research that helps to deepen our understanding of Aortic Dissections.
