Slide2:  American Heart Association Texas Affiliate Brent Fields Vice President Research Administration & State Health Alliances Research AHA Top Priority:  Research AHA Top Priority The AHA believes that learning more about the #1 and #3 killers in America is one of the best ways to accomplish our mission: Impact Goal: By 2010, we will reduce coronary heart disease, stroke and risk by 25 percent. Slide4:  The AHA’s commitment to research is reflected in our strategic plan: Increasing the capacity of the research community to generate the highest quality research; Identifying critical research agendas and increasing the understanding of specific cardiovascular issues. Slide5:  Research Expense for Major National Health Agencies: 2004 A American Cancer Society B Alzheimer’s Association C American Diabetes Association D National Multiple Sclerosis Society E March of Dimes F Muscular Dystrophy Association G Juvenile Diabetes Association H American Heart Association Slide6:  AHA’s 2004-05 EXPENDITURES AHA National Budget Expenditures Slide7:  How each dollar is spent Donor Dollar 28.5% 25¢ 75¢ National Center Texas Affiliate Research Allocation 15¢ 13.5¢ Nobel Prize Recipients funded by AHA:  Nobel Prize Recipients funded by AHA 1937 – Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi 1971 – Dr. Earl Sutherland 1985 – Dr. Joseph Goldstein 1985 – Dr. Michael Brown 1992 – Dr. Edwin Krebs 1998 – Dr. Robert Furchgott 2003 – Dr. Peter Agre Milestones:  Milestones 1956 - Dr. Ancel Keys, supported by funding from the Minnesota Affiliate, first links dietary fat with cholesterol. This discovery spurs the AHA to assume a leading role in urging Americans to change their eating habits. 1956 - Dr. Paul Zoll, aided by the Massachusetts Affiliate, publishes the first report of the successful ending of ventricular fibrillation in humans by externally applied countershock. 1957 - Dr. William Wierich, assisted by support from the Minnesota Affiliate and joined by Drs. Vincent Gott and Walter Lillehei, implants the first externally powered pacemaker in a patient with a surgical heart blockage. 1960 - Dr. Albert Starr performs the first long-term successful mitral valve replacement with a caged ball valve, ushering in a new era of valve replacement. He was supported in developing the artificial heart valve by the Oregon Affiliate and assisted by engineer Lowell Edwards. 1961 - Dr. Julius Jacobsen, with funding from the Vermont Affiliate, begins performing surgery with the aid of a microscope. Microsurgery ultimately leads to changes in coronary artery surgery, plastic surgery, neurosurgery, gynecology, limb reimplantation, and orthopedic and tumor surgery. 1985 - Drs. Joseph Goldstein and Michael Brown, sponsored by the AHA in 1972, 1973 and 1975, are awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their research on the role of low- density lipoprotein receptors in controlling blood cholesterol levels. Their research provides new insights into the ways fatty cholesterol enters body cells and why cholesterol levels may become too high.
