Cardiovascular Sciences Training Grant (T32 HL007381)

Program Director: James K. Liao

Administrator: Phetcharat Chen
Phone: 4-0415

Openings: 3 Predoctoral, 6 Postdoctoral

The Cardiovascular Training Grant supports both postdoctoral (M.D. and Ph.D.) and predoctoral (Ph.D.) students for terms of 2-3 years to work in the laboratories of one of 32 trainers, whose research is in the cardiovascular sciences. The trainers include faculty from Cardiology, Pathology, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Pharmacology and Physiology, and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. The program emphasizes training in vascular biology, atherosclerosis, cardiac development, cellular electrophysiology, cellular metabolism, cell signaling, gene regulation, and genetic disease.
