NIH Postdoctoral Cardiovascular Research Training Grant - Two Year

The purpose of this NIH sponsored training grant is to provide an intensive research training experience in basic or translational cardiovascular research. The program is designed for postdoctoral MD's or PhD's in preparation for independent investigative careers related to cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular fellowship applicants will find this an especially valuable opportunity to focus on an area of research interest under the guidance of established mentors in the field. A diverse array of training opportunities are available ranging from basic mechanisms of vascular disease to applied translational research. The University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center, Department of Internal Medicine, comprises the central foundation of this grant, although multiple links to other Divisions and Departments within the University of Michigan Medical School have been established to facilitate collaborations and novel pursuits in this rapidly expanding field. In addition to a multitude of basic research opportunities available through this grant, a translational scientific program has been developed to meet the needs of trainees interested in clinical investigation. This translational research program also provides an opportunity to complete a Masters of Science program in research design and statistical analysis within the University of Michigan School of Public Health. 

A core curriculum of didactic seminars designed specifically for trainees, interdisciplinary symposia and journal clubs have been established. Funding through this grant is typically available for 2-3 years.
