Site-Based Research Awards

The Heart Failure Collaboratory (HFC) announces new collaboration with the American Heart Association (AHA) for the annual HFC Site-Based Research Awards.

The 2024 awards will be presented during an event at
AHA’s Scientific Sessions in Chicago. The award recognizes top PI’s, Study Coordinators, and Sites.  Nominations will close on August 1st.

Our goal is to identify and promote the work of those who are outstanding participants in HF clinical trials. We are particularly interested in recognizing the diverse population of scientists across under-represented minority groups, sex, ethnicity, geographic location, and economic landscapes.

To be eligible, nominees should have meaningful involvement in a clinical trial listed on ClinTrials.govNominees’ range of accomplishments can include meritorious achievement in trial design, execution/enrollment, and/or reporting scientific content in a trial in which they were involved; as well as challenges encountered and steps taken to meet the challenge in a trial. 

Metrics to consider include number of subjects enrolled, enrollment of under-represented group/diverse populations, diverse study groups, data quality, retention, and citizenship (helping other sites participate, participating in trial activities, committee participation, patient recognition and education, dissemination of results).
