Funded Research Network

For more than 60 years, AHA has supported and funded research for cardiovascular disease and stroke in the United States. AHA is currently funding six research networks including a Go Red for Women Research Network, which comprises five centers that will individually focus on specific areas of heart disease and stroke.

As one of the five AHA award recipients, Johns Hopkins will research a particular kind of heart disease called heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). The goal of the Johns Hopkins’ Center for Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction is to understand the sex differences in HFpEF and to identify a personalized approach to treatment and prevention. The $3.7 million award will support research efforts over a four-year period.

Women's Cardiovascular Health Center

The Johns Hopkins Women’s Cardiovascular Health Center provides education, comprehensive treatment and diagnostic services to prevent and manage heart disease in women.
