William A. Zoghbi International Research Award

The ACC has committed to match Dr. Zoghbi's generous contribution by raising an additional $500,000.

Will you join us in meeting our goal to foster and grow the next generation of researchers outside the U.S.?

Support the visionary work of cardiovascular investigators around the world with a contribution to the ACC Global Endowment Fund. Your contribution will help us annually offer the William A. Zoghbi International Research Award and provide a springboard for innovative new research in countries outside of the U.S. that hold potential to improve the care and outcomes of patients living with cardiovascular disease.

The Global Endowment Fund was established with a generous $500,000 gift from Dr. William A. Zoghbi, MD, MACC. The ACC would like to honor Dr. Zoghbi and his contribution to the field by raising funds to match his donation so that we can elevate the innovative work being done in low- and middle-income countries by growing the number of research awards we are able to give each year.

Your support of this endeavor will allow us to offer two, annual $25,000 awards to scientists and researchers in countries where it is needed most. Your contribution will help us empower pioneering minds and transform cardiovascular care worldwide.

 With the global toll of cardiovascular disease, there is a need for investigations in countries with high burden of disease that can impact health and outcome locally. This award is a first step to help international cardiovascular investigators fulfill their research ambition and make a difference in their own community and beyond.
