The CorVita Science Foundation (CSF) is a Chicago based nonprofit dedicated to the accessibility and advancement of cardiovascular clinical and translational science at home and abroad.
While the academic medical center is the traditional realm for clinical trials, the CSF is devoted to fostering an opportunity that offers global cardiovascular research projects and collaboration for regional residents, fellows, and clinical cardiologists. Our inclusive approach, and focus for ongoing education, training and mentorship, is designed to improve care and outcomes, to heighten clinical knowledge and to expand a high-quality, expert and experienced research infrastructure in order to realize clinical trial enrollment efficiencies.
CSF partnerships with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies will introduce new technologies and innovations through clinical trials into communities that previously had limited access. CSF will provide the infrastructure, educational content and direction as well as clinical trial oversight to advance the efficiency and quality of clinical research and education amongst our partners and members.
The Foundation will work with hospital centers and physician medical groups to recruit highly skilled and well trained cardiologists and clinical/research personnel into their organizations. By partnering with CSF, these hospital academic centers and physician groups will have an advantage over organizations that don’t offer clinical trials due to lack of infrastructure and will promote innovative thinking. Recruiting highly skilled clinicians and offering clinical research trials will entice patients to stay within their communities.
The CSF is in the early stages of a multi-phase, multi-year strategic plan to establish a global operation of research and clinical fellows. We invite all interested cardiologists, industry partners and particularly next-generation medical students, residents, fellows and physicians who may be interested in participating in a global cardiovascular research organization by becoming charter council members and sharing their insights in order to develop our programs and relationships.
