For more than 25 years, TSFRE support has enabled many young cardiothoracic surgeons to develop successful, independent research careers and improve the care of our patients. Because of your support, many of these individuals are now leaders in the cardiothoracic surgery  community. This is a TSFRE legacy in which we can all take pride. Please take a moment to view the 2015 TSFRE Summer Newsletter. Here you will be able to find updates regarding TSFRE activities including the  TSFRE  Awards.

As part of the 2015 TSFRE Research Awards Program, TSFRE issued $270,000 for CT surgery research grants, $150,000 for TSFRE/Edwards Lifesciences Foundation Every Heartbeat Matters awards, and $45,250 in educational scholarships for CT surgeons.  Through your donations, you are making a wise investment, and ensuring the future of cardiothoracic surgery.
