Research Training Opportunities

Students interested in basic and translational research have the opportunity to work with world-leading experts in a wide range of disciplines in the cardiovascular sciences.

Trainees will gain experience using cutting-edge technology and model systems and work towards solving important problems in a collaborative environment. Leave with the skills and abilities to succeed in a number of academic and non-academic settings. 

Graduate training in cardiovascular sciences is offered through Graduate Science Education. Students can enroll in several different programs such as Biochemistry & Molecular Biology; Cardiovascular & Respiratory Sciences; Community Health Sciences; and Medical Sciences, while conducting research under the mentorship of Libin members. 

The Cumming Postdoctoral Scholar Program offers postdoctoral scholars up to three years of funding for a maximum of $50,000 plus benefits per year. 

Who can apply? Applicants who completed their PhD, professional health degree or clinical residency within two years and who don't have external salary support. Priority is given to new postdoctoral fellows.
