Heart disease remains one of the leading causes of death in the nation, even with many efforts to prevent, diagnose, and treat cardiovascular conditions. When heart disease and stroke are not fatal, they can result in serious illness, disability, and decreased quality of life. Heart disease and stroke cost the nation $320 billion in healthcare costs and lost economic productivity in 2011, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services.

Health Conditions Health Conditions These are the broad terms we use to categorize our funded research studies; specific diseases or conditions are included within the appropriate larger category. Note: not all of our funded projects focus on a single disease or condition; some touch on multiple diseases or conditions, research methods, or broader health system interventions. Such projects won’t be listed by a primary disease/condition and so won’t appear if you use this filter tool to find them. View Glossary
