Education & Training
NIH funded Vascular Biology Training Program
This Program provides multidisciplinary training in an elite environment for pre-doctoral and post-doctoral scientists that is at the forefront of research related to cell biology, immunology, inflammation, thrombosis and vascular biology. The Program addresses two emerging critical needs in training by providing state-of-the-art laboratory training for clinical M.D.'s to form the basis for their careers as future clinician-investigators and exposure of pre- and post-doctoral Ph.D. trainees in basic research to clinical pathophysiology to provide a disease-related framework for their training.
