Accomplishments

The Cardiovascular Research Training Institute Program

The Cardiovascular Research Training Institute Program (CaRT) trained 64 Ghanaian and Nigerian investigators at the University of Ghana in Accra to conduct research related to cardiovascular health and compete for extramural funding. The program, funded from 2011 to 2016 by the National Institutes of Health’s Fogarty International Center, aimed to increase the number of researchers and health services professionals in sub-Saharan Africa to manage the region’s growing cardiovascular disease burden. We prepared trainees to establish sustainable cardiovascular research capacity and pursue innovative projects targeting hypertension, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and stroke prevention. The program is seeking funding renewal and is not currently enrolling new scholars.
