Goal 1: Promote Human Health

Using the Electronic Health Record to improve population and individual health.

Every year millions of individuals suffer diseases of the heart, lungs, and blood. Some diseases have centralized care but rare diseases and diseases treated by a variety of provider types are difficult to study. The electronic health record feels primarily a tool for billing rather than for improving individual and population health. The challenges are:: 1. How can we structure a clinical health record which can... more »

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

e-cigarette and mental health

What is nicotine addiction in the absence of other materials? What cues are associated with smoking? We would like to see brain reward studies in special populations. We are also interested in understanding possible reduced harm in people who use e-cigarettes in cessation attempts, and understanding whether e-cigs are a gateway to other risky behaviors for young people who are experimenting.

Expand the H3Africa Partnership Model to Decrease HLB diseases

Is there a way to decrease the risks for HLB disease leveraging the H3Africa genomics platform? • Leverage partnerships providing resources to the H3African populations • Identify the best collaborative partners to reach out to the low resource population • Find the best mechanism for collaborations to facilitate the interventions in low resource settings • Merge NHLBI research objectives and goals with those of potential... more »

Research training to support population-focused obesity research in ethnic minority populations

NIH is already facing a challenge in increasing the number and viability of researchers of color. Obesity research in black (or other high risk minority) populations can be used to explore how research training programs that focus on specific issues of importance to populations of color might contribute to the recruitment and success of ethnic minority researchers in the NIH system.

Team Science in Global Health: Reducing the Burden of Chronic Heart, Lung, Blood Disorders in Developing Countries

By 2025, the world we will either meet or fall short of the goal to reduce the burden of chronic diseases globally by 25% by 2025. Most of this disease burden occurs in developing countries. Multi-disciplinary, multi-national partnerships to combat chronic heart, lung and blood disorders are needed for the most resolute, effective and sustainable responses. We need a program of research that addresses the highly variable... more »

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Community Collaborative Research Targeting Populations with CVD

In what ways can researchers better collaborate with community representatives from populations with high prevalence / morbidity / mortality of cardiovascular disease (CVD) to enhance and sustain interventions and achieve improved health outcomes? How can a combination of health behaviors and risk factors be used to conduct community-engaged research to prevent and treat CVD, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)... more »

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

The Investigator's Catch-22: How Can NHLBI Help?

The Critical Challenge is to determine how NHLBI can continue to foster the translational research necessary to allow our researchers to further develop their NHLBI-funded basic science discoveries. Researchers can't readily get a "typical" grant to perform the preclinical and early clinical translational IND-enabling research, and also can't yet attract private sector support without having done the work to "de-risk"... more »

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Community Trials for Cardiovascular Health Enhancement

There is a need to initiate innovative community trials that are: theory-based; are integrated multi-component, multi-setting, and multi-level (i.e., they target individual, family, community, and built environment); engage community stakeholders; and use community-participatory research principles to enhance cardiovascular health (CVH) in vulnerable and diverse populations.

Goal 4: Develop Workforce and Resources

Enhancement of the Medical Home and Medical Community with the use of EMS providers

Traditionally the Health Care model has meant that patients come to HCF for their care. Hospitals are increasingly overcrowded and also not always the best place to be due to the risk for nosocomial infections. Utilizing existing community resources to enhance the health both acute and chronic deserves exploration at the national level. Training paramedics to do chronic disease monitoring as well as as remotely work with... more »

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Incentivizing Translational Research

Support for scientific research depends on making a compelling case that we contribute to the health of Americans and the health of the US economy. This idea is to address the critical challenge of making basic research relevant to the lives of Americans by incentivizing NHBLI researchers to engage meaningfully in translational research.
