NIH Award Brings Together Pediatric and Adult Heart Disease Research and Training

The National Institutes of Health, National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, recently awarded researchers at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and The Ohio State University Medical Center (OSUMC) a five-year, $1.4 million grant to provide in-depth training to clinicians and basic scientists in congenital and acquired heart disease.

This training program is the first in the country that focuses on cardiovascular disease as a continuum from fetal life to senescence, allowing Nationwide Children’s and Ohio State to be well-positioned to have a measurable impact on cardiovascular disease, and to foster new collaborative opportunities between the institutions.
