Marietta-based charity Enduring Hearts announced today their alignment with the American Heart Association (AHA) as they establish the AHA/Enduring Hearts Foundation Research Award for investigators conducting research specific to solid organ transplantation longevity.

“We are thrilled to be working with the American Heart Association and establishing this important research award,” said Patrick Gahan, President of Enduring Hearts. “We look forward to contributing to heart transplantation research for many years to come with the ultimate hope of finding a long-term solution.”

The purpose of the AHA/Enduring Hearts Foundation Research Award is to provide investigators who are interested in conducting research directly related to improving solid organ transplant longevity with a priority towards pediatric transplants and a preference towards long-term outcomes of heart transplant recipients. To help fund this research award, Enduring Hearts will donate a minimum of $250,000 over the period of the award to the American Heart Association who will provide a similar level of funding towards the award.

Enduring Hearts seeks to enhance lives by funding research to increase the longevity of organ transplants, with a priority towards pediatric transplant recipients and a preference of research that benefits vital organs such as the heart. The results of the funded research projects will contribute to the knowledge about many aspects of the clinical and scientific transplantation, including the mechanisms of long-term organ deterioration, the consequence of tissue injury and the opportunities to intervene in these processes.
