"This award was crucial in my career and basically cemented my desire to become an electrophysiologist who wants to practice EP with a serious research lab to do translational research."
Rishi Arora, MD

"[This award] helped me bring in $10 million — not only to my lab and my research, but to the biomedical research industry. With that money, I paid salaries for young people that I supported until they got their fellowships."
Mario Delmar, MD, PhD, FHRS
