In October 2016, Dr. MacRae became the recipient of One Brave Idea, a $75million 5-year research award to study coronary heart disease and its consequences. This unique team-based program is funded by the American Heart Association, Verily and Astra Zeneca. His proposal was chosen from amongst a group of 349 applicants from 22 countries who sought the project to identify an entirely new approach to eradicate the number one killer of Americans with a visionary approach which holds promise for addressing a broad set of diseases.
