Vascular Cures' Wylie Scholar Program provides financial assistance to outstanding surgeons at the early stage of their careers, to help them develop as academic vascular surgeon-scientists. Vascular Cures has advanced breakthrough research since 1982.

As of 2014, the award is co-sponsored by the Society of Vascular Surgery (SVS) Foundation. Our partnership reflects our shared commitment to advancing the field through development of the next generation of leading vascular surgeon-scientists.

We've established a group of 16 surgeon-scientists at 14 institutions around the country who are transforming patient care. For each $150,000 granted,the Scholars generated $2.8 million in subsequent national research funding – a return on investment of nearly 19 to 1! Vascular Cures' initial research investment of $8 million has enabled another $42 million in funding —producing $50 million for research.
