NIH Training Grants

Interdisciplinary Training in Cardiovascular Research

The goal of the Interdisciplinary Training in Cardiovascular Research program at the University of Arizona is to train the next generation of scientists to actively and independently pursue heart, vascular and lung research in academic, industrial and government settings.  Keeping a core of translational cardiovascular and pulmonary (CVP) physiology established by this T32 over 45 years, the CVP Program coupled with institutional support is critically positioned deliver a contemporary didactic experience in physiological CVP research, applied research skills, and professional development in multiple career options, including opportunities to address the modern-era of data-driven research. We offer 7 predoctoral and 4 postdoctoral positions that are fully funded and includes travel, tuition, health insurance and other training related expenses. PI is Physiology Faculty member Dr. John Konhilas.

Computational and mathematical modeling of biomedical systems

This program prepares scientists for research careers in the computational and mathematical modeling of medically significant biological systems through interdisciplinary training at the predoctoral level. 

PI is Physiology Faculty member Dr. Tim Secomb.
