Call for Applications for 2014: Center of Excellence for Comparative Effectiveness Research
Application deadline: September 15, 2013
Program start date January 1, 2014
It is an exciting time to work in the health care field, as Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) has become a
national priority. Information, options, and outcomes are the facets of CER—research that has gained widespread
attention while medical innovation continues to generate more tests, treatments, and alternative therapies for
patients worldwide. Developing a skilled CER workforce is essential for effectively comparing the benefits and risks
of existing treatments and translating those findings into optimal care. Universities and medical schools have the
potential to shape this emerging field as they train the next generation of CER specialists. The PhRMA Foundation
is showing its support of CER education by awarding annual grants to institutions that will develop comprehensive,
degree-granting programs in CER. Each grant will be for $250,000 and distributed over a three-year period.
The purpose of this program is to provide funding to a U.S. educational institution in order for it to develop or
expand a degree-granting program in comparative effectiveness research (CER).
Organizations/institutions eligible to apply include those academic degree granting programs with an existing NIH
or AHRQ-funded CER research or training program and the capacity to develop a degree-granting program in CER
using existing tenure track professors.
Applications are available online at www.phrmafoundation.org and the application submission deadline is September 15, 2013. This award will begin on January 1, 2014.

American College of Cardiology Foundation/Merck Research Fellowships in Cardiovascular Disease
Four one-year fellowships will be awarded to support research in adult cardiology. Preference is given to individuals who have had no more than two years of prior full-time experience either in clinical or basic research. Recipients will be expected to pursue a full-time project in clinical research during their year of supported training.
Research Focus: In selecting applications, proposals addressing CVD and Cardiometabolic disorders are encouraged. Included are proposals that address pathophysiology, molecular genetics, metabolic abnormalities leading to cardiovascular disease, hypertension, heart failure, hyperlipidemia, inflammatory mechanisms and new pathways for drug discovery. Proposals focusing on clinically relevant outcomes as a result of the metabolic syndrome, diabetes or obesity are also encouraged. Outcomes studies should focus on clinical/and or systems of care (e.g., quality improvement) interventions, and use outcomes measures of importance to both patients and society, including mortality, significant morbidity or quality of life changes, or economic effects.
Preference for one award will be given to applicants focusing on disparities of care. Despite increased attention to health disparities at the national, state and community levels, relatively little progress has been made in achieving the vision of eliminating racial and ethnic health disparities. Since the rates of cardiovascular mortality in the United States are significantly higher for these patients and this is, in fact, the leading cause of death in this demographic, innovative approaches to eliminating these disparities are critical. In an effort to encourage and support research in this area, proposals will be encouraged that focus on gender, race, geographic, and economic inequalities in cardiovascular care.
Eligibility: Anyone currently in an adult cardiology fellowship training program recognized by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education or the American Osteopathic Association and who has the recommendation and agreement of his/her training program director and institution.
Selection: Judging will be by the ACCF/Research Fellowship Awards Committee. Criteria for selection will include:
• Scientific quality of the project;
• Relevance to the research focus as described above;
• Qualifications and commitment of the applicant; and
• The quality of the training environment.
Successful applicants may pursue this protected year of research either within or following their three years of required training. Preference will be given to individuals who:
• Will pursue clinical research training and experience directly involving patients or human subjects.
• Have had no more than two years of prior full-time research experience either in clinical or basic research.
• Will not hold another major external fellowship or salary award, (e.g., from the National Institutes of Health or the American Heart Association) during the ACCF/Merck funded year.
The Award: Four fellowships in the amount of $70,000 each, to be used for salary support, for one year of research to begin July 1, 2014 and run through June 30, 2015.
Funding Source: The ACCF is grateful to the Merck Company Foundation for their continued financial support for these awards.
