Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

Description:
This program trains a total of six fellows over two years through the NIH T32 training grant "Mechanisms & Innovation in Vascular Disease" in the following areas of vascular medicine & research: Vascular Reactivity & Thrombosis, Vascular Regeneration & Development, Metabolic or Lifestyle Influences on Vascular Outcomes, Proteomic Markers & Genetic Determinants of Vascular Disease, Gender & Ethnicity Differences in Vascular Disease, and Vascular Bioengineering. Twenty-nine faculty mentors from eighteen different departments within the School of Medicine and the University provide a variety of angles from which to address fundamental questions about vascular disease.

A structured curriculum, well-defined mentorship, and both internal and external evaluations ensure that fellows receive training in both research and career development to prepare them for independent careers. All fellows undergo a minimum two-year training period, with strong encouragement to submit individual research proposals (NRSA and AHA) for the following year(s). Support for a second year is conditional on evidence of research progress. At times a third year is offered for the transition to independence. It is mandatory that in Year 1 the trainee and mentor will outline a career plan for transition to independence, which may include grant preparations for funding through a K08 mechanism or application to the existing K12.
