Network Topic Announcement
The Strategically Focused Research Network will focus on Obesity.
The AHA is interested in the science community exploring all aspects of obesity, which can assist the AHA in reaching its 2020 Goals and overall mission of building healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke.
A Network is comprised of three to four institutions, or Centers, working on three projects each that are focused on one strategic area. A Center application can comprise projects from more than one institution. The sponsoring institution will be determined by where the Center Director is located and will be charged with oversight and financial responsibilities of the Center as a whole. Applications should convey how these different areas of science will be integrated, both in their scientific discoveries and through joint team communication and integration.
Institutions are limited to one Center application per location, however individuals at said institution who are not participating in said institution's Center application, may participate in another Center's application.
Centers are highly encouraged, where applicable, to align with AHA initiatives which are addressing obesity (potential initiatives listed below) and/ or other AHA Networks and Centers currently in progress (i.e. AHA's Strategically Focused Networks on: Prevention, Hypertension, Disparities in Cardiovascular and Stroke Health, Women, Heart Failure, and the Bugher Stroke Network).
