I. PROGRAM OBJECTIVES
Fondation Leducq is a private charitable foundation, based in Paris, France, dedicated to improving human health through international efforts to combat cardiovascular and neurovascular disease. In support of this mission the Fondation Leducq has created the Transatlantic Networks of Excellence in Cardiovascular and Neurovascular Research Program, which promotes internationally collaborative basic, translational, and clinical research in cardiovascular and neurovascular disease. The principal aim of this program is to foster outstanding and innovative scientific research by bringing together international teams of researchers with complementary expertise and resources to work together on a common thematic problem. The proposals should aim to generate new knowledge with the potential to advance the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cardiovascular and neurovascular disease. Early career investigators play a vital role in these networks, which provide an excellent context for training and career development in cardiovascular and neurovascular research.
In the 2018-2019 application cycle, the Fondation Leducq will award up to five
Transatlantic Network of Excellence grants, each for an amount not to exceed
U.S. $6,000,000 over five years.
