ISHLT GRANTS AND AWARDS PROGRAM


The Purpose of the ISHLT Grants and Awards Program is to support research training in heart and lung transplantation as well as end-stage heart and lung disease so as to encourage the development of clinical or basic science research in transplantation. Over the years, we have been able to provide these awards through the generous support of many companies, including CSL Behring, Novartis, Roche, Astellas, XDx, Encysive, Gilead, Thoratec and CoTherix, and through the hard work of the ISHLT Grants and Awards Committee.
