Clinical and Translational Training Program in Pulmonary Medicine
This training program, directed by Lorraine Ware, MD, is designed to support postdoctoral fellows with a clinical and translational research focus in pulmonary and critical care medicine.
The program has a roster of 30+ faculty available to mentor trainees in four research focus areas: Critical Care, Airway Disease, Pulmonary Vascular Disease, and Parenchymal Lung Disease. The program supports five trainees per year, typically for 2-3 years.
In addition, the program offers optional participation in the Vanderbilt Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) or Master of Public Health (MPH) programs.
Interdisciplinary Training Program in Lung Research
Division Director Timothy Blackwell, MD, directs this training program, which supports five trainees per year. The program supports postdoctoral fellows interested in basic science research focused on five pulmonary specialty areas: Lung Injury and Host Defense, Asthma and Airway Disease, Interstitial Lung Disease, Pulmonary Hypertension, and Perinatal Lung Disease.
Under the mentorship of 30+ faculty experts in these fields, the programs helps trainees develop skills in understanding research, learn to apply those skills to conduct and evaluate research, develop abilities in identifying and resolving problems associated with research, and develop an understanding of, and ability to, appropriately apply the principles of responsible conduct of research, in ways that will prepare them to utilize those skills in the pursuit of an academic research career.
