ICCAC 2019-2020 Research Grant Awards
ICCAC is excited to announce the winners of the ICCAC Research Grant Award this year.

We would like to congratulate Karen Meehan MSN, ACNS-BC, CVRN and Pamela Combs, PhD, RN for receiving the ICCAC 2019 Research Grant Awards. They both submitted original work ideas to the Research Workforce. Both of the grant proposals were scored and each project was felt to be exemplary in the field of MCS research. 

Karen’s topic was an international study on hemocompatability and anticoagulation quality.

Dr. Combs’ topic was a multi-center study determining effects of smoking on short term and long term surgical outcomes in LVAD patients.

Please join our Research Workforce in congratulating both individuals for jobs well done. We look forward to hearing their research project updates at our Annual Meeting to be held VIRTUALLY on June 17, 2020 at 3:00pm EST.

Research Grant Proposals will open up again May 2020 and close in September 2020 for the upcoming year. More details to come.
