The Henrietta B. and Frederick H. Bugher Foundation and the American Stroke Association (ASA), a division of the American Heart Association (AHA), have joined together to support a network of three Centers for Stroke Prevention Research for a period of four years. This funding is designed to produce a network of interacting institutions and scientists for collaborative, multidisciplinary research to improve the prevention of stroke. A major component of the centers will be the interdisciplinary training of a new generation of scientists who, from their earliest experiences in research, will collaborate with other scientists through monthly meetings with established investigators and annual meetings with other investigators participating in the centers. An ultimate product of this program will be the creation of a report on the challenges and results of active collaboration.

The ASA and Bugher Foundation intend to fund three Centers that will encompass the following goals:

  1. Accelerate generation of important, novel ideas
  2. Fill large gaps in knowledge and expertise
  3. Create realistic but dramatic gains (developing new investigators is one such gain)
  4. Utilize ASA/Bugher Centers as the central work engine
  5. Link research and training components through the program
  6. Prioritize multidisciplinary approaches with frequent collaborative communications

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, June 23, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should summarize 1) the research to be pursued, 2) plans for the training component, and 3) investigators to be involved in the center.


Total of $2.66 million per Center over the four years
