OHSU Cardiology has an NIH-sponsored T32 training program that is currently recruiting. The 2011 deadline is March 30 – so coming up soon! The program will recruit again in 2012, so also keep them in mind for next year.
The training program is open to both physician-scientists and basic scientists. Three trainees will be accepted in each recruiting class for a two-year research experience in one of four general investigative categories: Regulatory Physiology; Diabetes/Obesity; Developmental Programming; and Human Studies. This training program provides laboratory research training and mentoring that will establish the basis for a successful career as an independent investigator in an academic institution. The goal of the program is to produce scientists with a broad outlook and a focus on bringing science to the benefit of patients.
A full description of the program can be found on the OHSU Training Grants Recruitment webpage.
