|Congratulations to Drs. Jonathan Drezner, Kimberly Harmon and Aaron Baggish on being selected as the recipients of the 2020 AMSSM CRN $300K Research Grant for their research project titled "Outcomes Registry for Cardiac Conditions in Athletes (the ORCCA Study): a Prospective, Multisite Research Study".
|The long-term objective of their project is to establish an outcomes registry for competitive athletes diagnosed with cardiovascular disease. Initially, the investigators will launch a national registry using a cohort of NCAA athletes afflicted with COVID-19 to address urgent clinical questions related to the impact of SARS-CoV-2 on cardiovascular pathology and the risk of myocardial injury.
|This $300,000 grant award is being equally funded by AMSSM and the AMSSM Foundation as part of a $1 million-plus, five-year plan to support competitive CRN research awards.|
