Congratulations to the Innovation in Cardiovascular Ultrasound Research Award Recipients

The ASE Foundation is pleased to announce two $45,000 Innovation in Cardiovascular Ultrasound Research Award recipients this year. Primary consideration was given to the proposals’ scientific excellence, innovative nature, and research team.

  • Olivier Villemain, MD, PhD, The Hospital for Sick Children, University of Toronto: “Myocardial Stiffness and Coronary Microperfusion Assessment for Early Detection of Cardiac Allograft Vasculopathy in Children After Cardiac Transplantation: Human Application of Ultrafast Ultrasound Imaging”
  • Bethel Woldu, MD, MPH, Medstar Heart and Vascular Institute: “Non-invasive Assessment of Myocardial Work to Differentiate TTR Cardiac Amyloidosis from Hypertensive Cardiomyopathy”

The Innovation in Cardiovascular Ultrasound Research Award is a one-year (12 months), $45,000 scholarship given for meritorious echocardiographic research proposals relevant to innovation in cardiac ultrasound. Of particular interest were proposals that expand the key role of echocardiography or the development of novel technology in clinical diagnosis or management.
