For the last two years, the organization has received an abundance of proposals from investigators world wide that targeted clinical application in translational science. Dr. Vineet Agrawal from the Vanderbilt University Medical Center received the award in 2019 for his proposal, "A Pathogenic Role for Natriuretic Peptide Receptor-C in Modulating Pulmonary Hypertension and Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction," and researcher Paula Menezes was awarded in 2020 for her proposal titled, "Living with Pulmonary Hypertension in Latin America: A Patient's Perspective."
