Training

Learn about graduate, postdoctoral and fellowship training at the Center for Cardiovascular Research.

The Center for Cardiovascular Research provides an exciting and scientifically rigorous training environment for graduate students, PhD, MD and MD/PhD postdoctoral fellows, and MD, and MD/PhD cardiology research fellows. The diverse expertise and strengths of the CCR faculty and CCR affiliated investigators provide unique research opportunities and an exceptional environment for the training, mentoring and career development of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, cardiology and other research fellows, as well as for junior faculty developing independent careers in basic, clinical and translational cardiovascular research. The community is large and interactive. Students, fellows and faculty in CCR and adjunct CCR labs meet twice weekly in our popular CCR trainee and faculty (internal and visiting professor) seminar series.

The training environment at the CCR focuses on fostering the acquisition of skill sets that are required to succeed in a career as an independent investigator. A cardinal feature of the training environment in the Center for Cardiovascular Research is the emphasis that is placed on individualized training, skill acquisition, mentoring and career development. Numerous other educational, training and professional development opportunities are available for students and fellows through the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences and the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs.

The CCR is also home to an NHLBI-supported T32 training grant that supports the training of MD, MD/PhD and PhD postdoctoral research fellows.
