The Research Committee of the Society of Chest Pain Centers is pleased to announce the creation of two research grants in the amount of $10,000 each for clinical research conducted over a one-year period.
The Society of Chest Pain Centers specifically seeks research related to the topic of acute care of chest pain, heart failure and atrial fibrillation patients. Applicants may focus on a number of related areas, including: definitions and outcome measures of these patients, diagnostic strategies, and potential solutions to systematic challenges of evaluating these patients.
Priority will be given to applications that address heart failure management in an observation setting, patients who present with atrial fibrillation, and novel diagnostic strategies in evaluating patients with chest pain of unclear etiology.
Applications will be accepted from any healthcare professional. Deadline for receipt of applications is January 6, 2012. For more information or to submit an application, go to our website.
