CCS COVID-19 Challenge for Canada Initiative (CCS-C3I)

As the prevalence and outcomes of cardiovascular complications of COVID-19 remain poorly understood and uncharacterized, the aim of C3I  is to empower the CCS clinician-scientist community to be prepared to harness emerging large-scale funds. By fostering multisite cardiovascular research across Canada, our CV community will be at the forefront of readiness for large-scale, CVD-related COVID-19 disease initiatives.
