The American Heart/Stroke Association is committed to identifying and supporting specific science areas deemed critical to achieving our mission and strategic objectives. Foundation and corporate support for such strategically focused research, as well as partnerships with other professional organizations, allow the AHA to fund special initiatives or awards.
The American Heart Association has funded major medical breakthroughs over the years, including the first artificial heart valve, implantable pacemakers, and techniques and standards for CPR.  The American Heart Association’s funding of basic and clinical research produce significant results and discoveries.  We are recognized as a worldwide leader in cardiovascular science.  Countless top cardiovascular scientists throughout the world are linked in some way with us.
Supporting research for heart disease and stroke is a top priority for the American Heart Association.  To learn how you can take action to advocate for more federal research funds, visit Research Saves Lives!
