Please include the funding mechanism to which you are applying for.

Technical Support for Animal Procedures

The CVRI seeks to foster cardiovascular research.  To that end, we offer limited access to technical support for the performance of large and small animal procedures between July 1 2020 and June 30 2021.  Requests for support should be reviewed with a current member of the Board of Directors who will, in turn, review the request with the entire board.  Request for support from junior investigators will be given priority.

CVRI Travel Awards

CVRI travel awards are available to support trainees and junior investigators presenting abstracts at regional and national scientific meetings.  These competitive awards are for reimbursement of presentation-related expenses of up to $2,000 and offered on a limited rolling basis throughout the academic calendar year; more details can be found on the application for funding.
