Starting Sept. 3, 2019, the Patient-Centered Research Outcomes Institute has announced it has updated its Research Areas of Interest to include peripheral artery disease for the 2020 funding cycle.

The Broad PCORI (Patient-Centered Research Outcomes Institute) Funding Announcements (PFAs) seek investigator-initiated applications for patient-centered comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER) projects aligned with our priority areas for research. This PFA covers the following four priority areas: Addressing Disparities; Assessment of Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment Options; Communication and Dissemination Research, and Improving Health Systems. These broad areas encompass the patient-centered comparative CER we support.
