Applying for a Research Grant at Abiomed

Abiomed funds research programs that investigate how mechanical circulatory support by the Impella may positively affect patient outcomes. All types of research programs will be considered, including but not limited to: clinical studies, pre-clinical (animal) investigations, and registry studies. All research programs must focus on how Impella support can improve patient outcomes. Research proposals are reviewed quarterly by our Academic Research Department. The deadline for submission to each of these quarterly review sessions is outlined below.

Applications received by the indicated deadline will be reviewed at the next immediate proposal review session. Any application received after the proscribed deadline will be evaluated at the review session in the next quarter. Please click here to be redirected to our online grant submission portal.
