American Stroke Association-Bugher Foundation Centers of Excellence in Hemorrhagic Stroke

The Henrietta B. and Frederick H. Bugher Foundation and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association announce a Request for Applications (RFA) for the Centers of Excellence in Hemorrhagic Stroke Research comprising at least three (3) Centers and one (1) Centralized Training Center within this Network (see appropriate section for application details).

The intent of this initiative is to support a collaboration of basic, clinical and/or population researchers from different disciplines whose collective efforts will lead to new approaches to the study of HS. Each Center must have at least two (2) research projects, but no more than three (3) projects, from two (or three) of these disciplines: basic, clinical, and/or population science. All projects must focus on HS, and the proposed projects must demonstrate synergy such that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Note: Population health studies are inclusive of projects ranging from cohort studies to translational work and/or implementation projects involving community interventions. All projects must address health care disparities and/or health equity.

An institution may submit only one center application and only one centralized training center application in response to this RFA.
