The COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve and impact our personal and professional lives. We want to assure our trustees, reviewers, and grantee communities that our TMF staff continues to provide high quality biomedical research grantmaking services. We will do our part to help manage any potential challenges and continue supporting research to the extent that it is possible. Please notify us with any questions or requests.
SUPPORTING TRANSLATIONAL HEART DISEASE RESEARCH
Program Focus and Overview: The Harold S. Geneen Charitable Trust Awards Program for Coronary Heart Disease Research supports research in the area of the prevention of coronary heart disease or circulatory failure, and improving care for these patients. The Program focuses on basic and translational scientific research. Clinical studies are currently ineligible.
In accordance with Mr. Geneen’s directives the Program supports smaller, mid-sized institutions “rather than major universities or medical complexes which have a demonstrated capacity to raise funds from the public generally.”
In response to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, applications examining the intersection of coronary heart disease and/or congestive heart failure and COVID-19 or similar viral illnesses are highly encouraged and will be given special consideration.
Eligibility: Each invited institution may submit a single application from a full-time faculty member. United States citizenship is not required. Junior faculty and those with less than $500,000 in direct costs funding at the time of application are encouraged to apply.
