The Harold S. Geneen Charitable Trust Awards Program for Coronary Heart Disease Research supports research in the area of coronary heart disease or circulatory failure prevention and improving care for these patients. The Program focuses on basic and translational scientific research. Clinical studies are currently ineligible.

Applications examining the intersection of coronary heart disease and/or congestive heart failure and COVID-19 or similar viral illnesses are highly encouraged to apply.

Internal Application Instructions

UCI is one of only 14 institutions invited to participate in this program; three grants of $250,000/2 years will be awarded.  All full-time faculty with combined federal and non-federal funding totaling $500,000 or less are eligible, and junior faculty are encouraged to apply.

UCI may nominate only one candidate; therefore, interested applicants are asked to submit a preliminary application to the Office of Research by Thursday, May 30, 2024 by 11:59pm (via the UCI Review system) with the following information:

  • Research project summary (500 word maximum, in accordance with this sponsor’s guidelines for the same)
  • NIH-style Biosketch
  • Statement from applicant affirming that they will not have, at the time of application (July 11, 2024), combined federal and non-federal funding totaling $500,000 or more.

If more than one qualified application is received, an ad hoc committee will convene an expedited review of internal applications so that the selected nominee will have time to submit an application by the foundation’s deadline of July 11, 2024.
