Date:11/28/2012

MAYWOOD, Ill. - The American Heart Association has awarded Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine $60,666 for cardiac research in 2012, bringing the lifetime total the AHA has awarded to Loyola to more than $10 million.

During a Nov. 28 ceremony, American Heart Association Metro Chicago Board President Sandra E. Burke, PhD presented a symbolic check Richard Kennedy, PhD, vice provost for Research and Graduate Programs; and Pieter de Tombe, PhD, chair of the Department of Cell and Molecular Physiology.

Burke said the American Heart Association has been a proud supporter of Loyola's researchers for more than 35 years.

"The funding of vital research studies is a key component of the American Heart Association's mission to build lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke," Burke said. "We are pleased to present this check to the researchers at Loyola University Chicago who are helping us achieve that goal."

Loyola researchers are conducting a broad spectrum of cardiac research, from the laboratory bench to the patient's bedside.
