Join E21 Research Grant study section chairs Jonathan R. Lindner, MD, FASE (American Society of Echocardiography) and J. Brian Fowlkes, PhD, FAIUM (American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine) for a moderated discussion with the E21 Grant Recipients. The event will include updates on the innovative research being done through clinician-scientist and engineering partnerships, and dialogue regarding cutting-edge ultrasound research.
Featuring the inaugural E21 Research Grant Recipients presenting their mid-term progress reports:
- Oliver Kripfgans, PhD, FAIUM, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI – “Bedside Cardiovascular Monitoring of Neonates with Patent Ductus Arteriosus”
- Babak Nazer, MD, Knight Cardiovascular Institute, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, OR – “Echocardiographic Optimization of Ultrasound Septal Reduction for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy”
- Patricia Pellikka, MD, FASE, Division of Cardiovascular Ultrasound, Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN – “DeepEcho: Echocardiogram Image Normalization Using Deep Learning for Detection and Prognostication of Heart Failure”
About the E21 Research Grants Program
The aim of this inaugural grant funding opportunity was to promote research partnerships between clinician-scientists and engineering scientists, with the purpose of addressing a major clinical problem in cardiovascular ultrasound imaging. Funding was provided by the ASE Foundation, American Society of Echocardiography, American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, National Board of Echocardiography, Inc., Bracco, Inc., and Lantheus Medical Imaging, Inc.
