In Iowa during the past 5 years (2012-2016) the American Heart Association funded more than $15 million  in new research:  
 

  • 1 study at Coe College, Cedar Rapids, at a cost of $4,000
  • 1 study at Des Moines University Osteopathic Medical Center, at a cost of $211,903
  • 2 studies at Iowa State University, Ames, at a cost of $360,000
  • 90 studies at the University of Iowa, Iowa City at a cost of $15,122,394

Nationwide, we invest almost $145 million a year ($3.7 billion since 1949) in heart and stroke research that has led to recent breakthroughs such as clot-busting drugs and drug-eluting stents. Healthcare providers learn about medical advances and new treatment guidelines though our journals, conferences and online courses.

In our 11-state Midwest Affiliate we currently are supporting 402 multi-year studies at a cost of $70,327,574.
