Purpose and Activities

Giving is focused on cardiovascular research and treatment. Within these areas, the foundation seeks to fund seminal projects- those judged to be both important and unique which otherwise might have difficulty finding initial funding. The foundation works at the leading edge of this research, funding innovative projects under the highest quality investigators and institutions.
