ISCTR-American College of Cardiology Foundation Cardiovascular Translational Research Scholarship
sponsored by Dignity Health, St. John's Hospital
The purpose of the program is to recognize and provide financial support for research efforts by outstanding cardiovascular scholars. This scholarship is to encourage junior faculty in the early phases of their careers in the field of cardiology. The program is intended for a physician with a strong interest in developing a career in cardiovascular translational research.
One year of previous interventional cardiology training is required. The duration of the program is one year. The awardee will develop skills and expertise in translating basic biological and device concepts into clinical application.
Goal: The overall goal of the program is to provide the clinical scientist (a physician) with the necessary scientific background that does not exist in today's curriculum. The program will enable the awardee to expedite scientific discovery to clinical application, ultimately benefitting the patient and society by providing science earlier and decreasing the developmental costs related to new devices and/or novel biologic therapies.
The program will cover the topics of:
• Basic science
• Preclinical science
• Clinical science and trial design
• Regulatory pathways (FDA) for IND (investigational new drug application) and IDE (investigational new device exemption)
The emphasis will be on biologics (stem cell therapy and genomics) and cardiovascular device development.
Objectives: The fellow will:
• Develop the skills and knowledge to take a scientific concept to the bedside
• Gain substantial knowledge about the steps in cardiovascular translational research
• Understand product development related to devices or biologics
• Learn about toxicology studies required on small and large animal models that serve for IND or IDE application
• Understand the statistical design and analysis required for toxicology studies, and phase I, II, and III clinical trials
• Learn about the regulatory pathways for and how to prepare an IND (Investigational Drug Application) and an IDE (Investigational Device Exemption)
• Understand fundraising, NIH grant application process, opportunities in the venture capital arena, and developing and maintaining relationships with industry

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.
