Vascular Cures has named Matthew Corriere, MD, at the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, as its 2014 Wylie Scholar in Academic Vascular Surgery.

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 17 surgeon-scientists at 15 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.
