National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Training Program

NHLBI T32 Training Grant

.The three major aims of our training program are to:

  • Provide three years of rigorous scientific training for physician-scientists, enabling them to serve as independent investigators examining scientific questions directly related to human lung disease
  • Provide up to three years of postdoctoral training to PhD scientists, focusing their studies in lung biology
  • Train graduate students from the MD-PhD program and other established degree-granting programs – and guide them into careers in lung research.

MD trainees are strongly encouraged to obtain advanced degrees to optimize their opportunities for a successful investigative career.

The three major curricular areas encompassed by the program are:

  • Cell & Molecular Biology
  • Systems Biology, Bioengineering; & Bioinformatics
  • Clinical & Public Health Research
