This grant opportunity is designed to support MCS research conducted by VAD coordinators and other critical non-physician MCS staff. Multi-center research is encouraged.

Any clinical research topic related to the field of MCS will be considered. However, study aims that support use of, or development of, best practices are preferred. Research topics should be targeted toward timely issues, such as regulatory compliance, palliative care practices, devastating or common adverse events, etc. Research should be completed within 2 years.
