The Cardiovascular Foundation of Southeast Texas (CFST) was inspired by what we’ve learned from more than 100 clinical trials as principal investigators over the past 20 years at the Southeast Texas Clinical Research Center (SETCRC). Those trials evaluated both medical treatments and devices designed to improve cardiovascular outcomes.
The CFST will work closely with the SETCRC in the design and performance of original clinical trials of drugs and devices to improve the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disorders. These studies will range from first in-man proof-of-concept to more innovative device trials. The Foundation currently supports the development of two original devices for the treatment of occluded arteries and percutaneous creation of dialysis A-V fistulas.
The Foundation will support educational scholarships and grants for healthcare students in Southeast Texas. CFST will also provide funds for medical assistance for indigent patients in our community.
