Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Does lowering circulating lipoprotein(a) levels influence cardiovascular outcomes?

A comprehensive research strategy and plan is needed to determine the most efficient, safe, cost-effective and widely applicable strategy to decrease circulating levels of lipoprotein(a) and to determine whether lowering circulating lipoprotein(a) levels will reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease such as a heart attack or a stroke as well as the progression of atherosclerosis or aortic stenosis.

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Understand the Impact of Thrombosis in Children with Cancer

CC: Despite the potential impact that venous thrombotic events (VTE) have on children with cancer, several unresolved issues remain. To date, we are yet to understand:
- incidence/prevalence of VTE according to cancer type/staging
- ideal imaging modalities to diagnose/follow VTE
- thromboprophylaxis according to thrombosis risk stratification (development of VTE predictors)
- efficacy/safety to anticoagulate children... more »

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Enhancing Cardiovascular Health in Childhood Through Adulthood

To enhance or maintain ideal cardiovascular health (CVH) in children and adolescents, what novel and long-term interventions can be implemented using multi-level (i.e., targeting individual, family, community, and built environment) and sustainable approaches?

Would implementation and translation of the AHA 2020 impact goals in children and adolescents enhance their CVH through adulthood?

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

Develop biomarker panel to predict CVD risk in -omics era

There is a need to utilize the vast data generated in -omics research to develop biomarker panels for better prediction of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risks.

•Cardiovascular diseases develop over decades and different panels of markers may be required for different stages

•Lead molecules as potential biomarkers need to be selected by a panel of experts

•Standard procedures about sample preparation, data acquisition,... more »

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Reducing Atrial Fibrillation by treating modifiable risk factors

Would better management of modifiable risk factors, including obesity, sleep apnea, hypertension, hyperglycemia, and metabolic syndrome, reduce atrial fibrillation recurrence? Furthermore, what are the best methods to reduce the onset, hospitalization, and death due to atrial fibrillation, especially that associated with aging

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Identifying the High Venous Thromboembolism-Risk Individual

Over 500,000 incident or recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) events occur annually in the US. Almost one-quarter of acute pulmonary embolism patients suffer sudden death. To improve survival, the occurrence of VTE must be reduced. However, the incidence of VTE has increased over the last 30 years. Moreover, near universal prophylaxis of patients hospitalized for surgery or for medical illness has not reduced hospitalization-associated... more »
