Cardiovascular diseases are a global problem, which is why the DZHK collaborates with researchers worldwide.
Since 2018, the DZHK has been running a joint funding scheme with the British Heart Foundation (BHF), in which the Dutch Heart Foundation (Hartstichting) has also been involved since 2019. The focus of the joint funding line is on preclinical research that contributes to improving the clinical diagnosis, prevention or treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
In Germany, members of the DZHK (DZHK Principal Investigators or "DZHK Scientists") are eligible to apply.
The application documents are available for DZHK members on the intranet.
