MAYWOOD, Ill. - The American Heart Association has awarded Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine $438,740 for cardiac research in 2013, bringing the lifetime total the organization has awarded to Loyola to $10.6 million.

Since 1984, the Heart Association has funded 112 studies at Loyola.

On Feb. 12, William H. Roach, Jr., former national board chairman of the American Heart Association, presented a symbolic check to Richard Kennedy, PhD, vice provost for Research and Graduate Programs, Health Sciences Division; and Pieter de Tombe, PhD, director of Loyola's Cardiovascular Research Institute.

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

Loyola provides complete heart and vascular care, ranging from teaching heart-healthy lifestyles to pioneering the latest technology. For 11 years in a row, U.S. News and World Report has named Loyola as one of the top 50 hospitals nationwide for cardiology and heart surgery. In the current rankings Loyola is ranked 20th in the nation.
