SVS Foundation Grant Integral to Research (Sidebar to Focus on Research)

Dr. Iraklis Pipinos has studied peripheral arterial disease for much of his career. His research, he said, got a tremendous boost from being awarded a K08 grant, the Mentored Clinical Scientist Research Career Development Award, from the SVS Foundation, in 2005 to study the myopathy of PAD. His findings eventually led to larger NIH grants and helped the research team develop additional findings which in turn have led to new applications for funding and research. The SVS Foundation Award (co-sponsored by the American College of Surgeons and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute) “essentially helped me shape the research focus for what will probably be all my academic career.”

The SVS Foundation annual appeal, for donations to fund grants to lead to still more breakthroughs in vascular research, is underway. Please give today at www.SVSFoundationSite.org. Click at the link to read the 2016 SVS Foundation Annual Report.
