Since 2006, Saving tiny Hearts Society (StHS) has been working to fulfill its mission of raising seed money for grossly under-funded, lifesaving grass roots research of congenital heart defects (CHD’s). These research grants are intended to fund early stage science with unique hypotheses fostering the next generation of congenital heart defect research, thus, creating a strong foundation of preliminary evidence to make scientific advancements.
As a private, not-for-profit source of funds for scientists studying congenital heart defects (CHD), the Saving tiny Hearts Society focuses its funding on investigator-initiated, peer-reviewed proposals. This process ensures that researchers propose projects they believe are ready to be tackled with the available knowledge and techniques. This intellectual freedom encourages discovery in areas that scientists believe are most likely to determine hidden causes and discover cures to prolong, improve and save the lives of all children afflicted with congenital heart defects. Proposals can be basic science, translational, or clinical in nature. Proposals focused on the impact of COVID-19 on CHD patients are also invited.
