The CVMM Theme provides competitive grants for projects that identify and seek to address areas of unmet needs in improving cardiac, vascular and metabolic medicine outcomes in the communities we serve. Our grants also allow opportunities for emerging researchers to lead and develop smaller projects with the potential to feed into larger funding opportunities. 

Future rounds will be announced when open.
