Postdoctoral Fellowship Training

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:
Philip Tsao, PhD,
and Nick Leeper, MD

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,
Euan Ashley, MD, PhD,
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

Postdoctoral Positions

A postdoctoral position is currently available for a highly motivated and collaborative individual interested in pursuing research on the role of Wnt signaling in the establishment of endothelial-pericyte interactions in the pulmonary circulation. The successful candidate will have experience with in vivo model systems such as transgenic mice, rats and must have experience with processing tissue for cell isolation and downstream analysis. In addition, the candidate will be working in human derived lung tissue and cell samples obtained from individuals with pulmonary vascular disorders who are seen in our center. Full command of conversational and written english is a must.

If interested, please send your CV and letter of intent to Dr. Vinicio de Jesus Perez
