Myocardial Recovery Alliance (MYRA)

The University of Kentucky's Alliance Initiative capitalizes on collaboration and the transdisciplinary strategy built from the best practices and metrics across the nation in developing programmatic research. It is designed to provide seed funding and support for multidisciplinary teams of scientists, from colleges and centers across the University’s campus, to find answers to the health challenges that disproportionately affect Kentuckians. The CV-RPA is part of three Alliance Initiatives, the first one we would like to feature is the Myocardial Recovery Alliance (MYRA) led by Ken Campbell, PhD, and Emma Birks, MD, PhD.

The MYRA supports the Cardiovascular Research Priority Area by:
1. Capitalizing on our national-level clinical strength in Advanced Heart Failure
2. Building transdisciplinary research programs that bridge from basic to clinical science
3. Supporting junior faculty as they develop research programs focused on myocardial recovery
4. Facilitating training of students, residents and fellows as they seek to improve treatments for patients who have heart failure
