Zoll Medical announced that it has donated $10 million to its nonprofit foundation to support research and education on resuscitation and acute critical care.
Since December, the Zoll Foundation has provided grants totaling $2.5 million to 69 young investigators from 14 countries, according to a news release.
“It has been very rewarding to provide grants to many dedicated young researchers in the area of resuscitation and acute critical care since we saw the need and established the foundation to support them,” foundation president Ward M. Hamilton said in the release. “We believe our support is contributing to a new generation of researchers who will drive science ahead in these fields and become the mentors of next-generation of researchers in the future.”
“I have seen firsthand how the Zoll Foundation helps young researchers. Even during the pandemic, it has continued to provide grants to support research that plays a critical role in advancing science and biotechnology,” added Dr. Fumito Ichinose of Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
Three current and past trainees in Ichinose’s laboratory received foundation grants over the past three years (2018-2020).
The next deadlines for grant applications are March 31 and Sept. 30, 2021. More information is available here.
