Most people believe that a transplanted heart is a cure for children born with congenital heart defects, in reality, it is often just a temporary treatment. That is why we fund the often overlooked research needed to help eliminate rejection, prevent life-threatening complications, and reduce the risk that a child will need a second transplant.
Enduring Hearts’ Scientific Advisory Committee seeks to fund projects that have a combination of the best science, innovation, and potential for impact.
Since its inception, Enduring Hearts has deployed more than $6.5 million in research funding, aimed at fostering the development of new technologies, creating new guidelines for post-transplant care, improving patients’ compliance with medications, and most importantly, developing less invasive procedures to combat organ rejection.
