Cardiovascular Imaging

Program Directors:
Joseph Wu, MD, PhD,
  John M. Pauly, PhD,
and Koen Nieman MD, PhD

The Multi-Disciplinary Training Program in Cardiovascular Imaging at Stanford is funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering of the National Institutes of Health. The program is designed to train the next generation of cardiovascular imaging investigators by exposing them to three complementary areas:

  • Clinical
  • Engineering
  • Molecular Imaging


Mechanisms & Innovation
in Vascular Disease

Program Directors:
Ronald Dalman, MD,

and Philip Tsao, PhD

This program trains a total of six fellows over two years through the NIH T32 training grant "Mechanisms & Innovation in Vascular Disease" in the following areas:

  • Vascular Reactivity and Thrombosis
  • Vascular Regeneration and Development
  • Metabolic or Lifestyle Influences on Vascular Outcomes
  • Proteomic Markers and Genetic Determinants of Vascular Disease
  • Gender and Ethnicity Differences in Vascular Disease
  • Vascular Bioengineering

Research Training
in Myocardial Biology

Program Directors:
Daniel Bernstein, MD,
and Thomas Quertermous, MD

The Multi-Disciplinary Research Training Program in Myocardial Biology at Stanford (TIMBS) is funded by the National Institutes of Health to bring together post-doctoral fellows and faculty from six complementary areas:

  • Genetics and Genomics
  • Cellular Signaling
  • Molecular Imaging
  • Physiology and Phenotyping
  • Cardiac Development and Regeneration
  • Outcomes Research and Population Science
