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
The Training Faculty is drawn from four Academic Health Center colleges and the College of Science & Engineering. Faculty expertise extends across a broad spectrum, including: pulmonary fibrosis; lung injury; lung cancer; COPD; sleep medicine; asthma; cystic fibrosis; and bioethics. Comprehensive resources and stable research funding in each area provide an outstanding training environment.
