Postdoctoral Training Grants

Cardiovascular Imaging

Program Directors:
Joseph Wu, MD, PhD
  John M. Pauly, PhD
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
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
Thomas Quertermous, MD
Euan Ashley, MRCP, DPhil

Myocardial biologists at Stanford are found in diverse departments and divisions within the wider Stanford community and this provides a natural vehicle for multidisciplinary training across six complementary areas: 

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