The Headley Family Award was established earlier this year and made possible through the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Harry and Dorothy Headley in support of basic cardiovascular research at Duke.
The CVRC used an invited application process which began in early March.
The award will provide annual one-year seed grants of $25,000 (plus indirect costs at 15 percent) targeted toward CVRC researchers who are conducting innovative research into the causes and treatment of hypertension, atherosclerosis and related cardiovascular diseases.
The Headley’s, who celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary in May, have lived in Durham since 2004. The CVRC is grateful for the support they have provided to our research team.
