He graduated from Karachi University in 1950 and went into the textile business. On a trip to California in the 1970s, he had a heart attack and remained in the US . Mr. Adaya was the founding partner of IDS Real Estate Group, a prominent California real estate company. He also established the Meridian Group, another full service real estate company.

He was instrumental in establishing the New Horizon Schools, a progressive Islamic educational institution with four branches in southern California in 1984 . He also sponsored Islamic art exhibitions at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and funded a publication on Islamic artifacts. His life and generosity have impacted a generation of Muslims in both the United States and in Pakistan .

Mr. Adaya passed away in 2006 after a courageous battle with heart disease. The Adaya Family, in their great generosity, has decided to fund the Ahmad Adaya Cardiothoracic Research Fellowship in his honor and memory. The fellowship provides the annual salary for one recipient per year.

Vision:

To establish a fellowship program that would be at the cutting edge of cardiothoracic research in areas of heart and lung failure and thoracic oncology.

Goals:

  1. To promote the advancement of cardiothoracic research in areas of heart and lung failure, transplantation and thoracic cancer
  2. To provide an opportunity for outstanding young doctors from Pakistan to pursue graduate education in cardiothoracic surgery
  3. To provide a foundation for recipients of this fellowship to pursue academic careers in cardiothoracic surgery
  4. To encourage a generation of outstanding young doctors to aspire to the ideals of excellence, compassion, humanity and public service

This will be a one-two year fellowship. The fellowship will be directed by Faiz Y. Bhora, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Surgery at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. The fellowship recipients will be expected to present their research at national and international meetings and publish in top-tier journals. The candidates will be expected to join a surgical training program at the end of the fellowship. Jawad Latif , MD , the first graduate of this program, matched successfully into a categorical general surgery program in 2009.
