What to Support

The Cardiac Surgery Innovation and Technology Endowed Fund helps provide the cutting-edge technology that allows URMC to compete as a national leader in cardiac surgery. The fund will provide support for cardiac surgeon-scientists to conduct research in minimally invasive surgery and help improve the standard of care for patients suffering from severe advanced heart failure.  

The Frank Richeson, MD Cardiology Patient Care Assistance Program provides assistance to URMC cardiology patients who cannot afford necessary medications, rehabilitation therapies, doctor visits, or any other services recommended by their cardiology care team.&

The UR Medicine Cardiac Care Gift Fund supports annual programming for the cardiac care team. Gifts play a critical role in improving the quality of life for our patients, support our research endeavors, and provide educational opportunities for the next generation of cardiovascular clinician-scientists. 

The Cardiology Research Fund will continue to support our commitment to advance cardiovascular science by funding clinical research studies of national and international scope.

The Cardiology Fellows Research Fund will provide support to our cardiology fellows to start new clinical research projects and present their findings at national meetings, helping propel new discoveries that can change the course of cardiovascular disease.
