Enduring Hearts created a new partnership agreement with the American Heart Association to jointly fund $3,000,000 in pediatric heart transplant research focused on improving the quality of life for children with a new heart and creating discoveries that will help each child have the chance to live a normal, long life! This is the first time the American Heart Association has committed funding specifically to pediatric transplantation. Enduring Hearts Executive Director Carolyn Salvador states, “We are extremely excited to see AHA match our funding levels so that together we can make a significant impact to change clinical practice in the near future.”
The research will focus on critical areas such as improving methods for doctors to detect transplant rejection earlier than a traditional heart biopsy, helping to reduce post-transplant complications and illnesses, and improving the side effects of immunosuppressants.
