Research at Minnesota Institutions
In Minnesota during the past five years (2012-2016) the American Heart Association funded more than $12 million in new research:

  • 42 new research studies at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, at a cost of $5,836,499
  • 51 new research studies at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, at a cost of $6,520,113

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.
