30 Years of Groundbreaking Science, Training, and Innovation

TCT 2018 is sponsored by the Cardiovascular Research Foundation and supported through educational grants from multiple commercial supporters. The Cardiovascular Research Foundation strives to ensure that its programs are as educational as possible and free from bias. To support this endeavor, TCT directors and co-directors create organizational and scientific committees to assist in educational content development and oversight for live cases, concurrent sessions, case reviews, practical workshops, and scientific symposia. These sessions are developed without influence from commercial supporters.

Educational grant support from our industry colleagues, who, like the Cardiovascular Research Foundation, are dedicated to educating medical professionals and the public to enhance patient outcomes, helps to make each TCT possible.

It is the policy of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation to ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all of its sponsored educational programs. Commercial support from industry does not influence educational content, faculty selection, and/or faculty presentations and therefore, does not compromise the scientific integrity of the educational activity.

Faculty participating in continuing medical education activities sponsored by the Cardiovascular Research Foundation are required to disclose to the program audience any real or apparent conflict of interest related to the content of their presentation(s). Faculty in noncompliance with this policy are not permitted to participate in this activity.
