Winter 2017 Children's Network

Network Topic Announcement

The Strategically Focused Research Network will focus on Children.

The AHA is interested in the science community exploring the etiology, prevention or treatment of cardiovascular disease or stroke in Children, 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.

Center applications are limited to one Center application per institution. Individuals may not apply as a Director on more than one application, but may participate in multiple applications if the designated role is different than a director role (e.g. Project PI, Collaborating Investigator, Consultant, etc).

Centers are highly encouraged, where applicable, to align with AHA initiatives which are addressing children (e.g. Voices for Healthy Kids, NFL Play 60 Challenge, Healthy Way to Grow, etc.) 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, Obesity, and the Bugher Stroke Network). Please see the AHA's SFRN website for a complete listing of AHA initiatives. Offered by: AHA National Research Program
