Postdoctoral Research Training Fellowship in Lung Biology
This research training fellowship, funded by the National Institutes of Health, will train four postdoctoral fellows from MD and PhD backgrounds for up to two years. Our mission is to train aspiring postdoctoral fellows into exceptional physician-scientists who are the forefront of pioneering basic and translational research. Research is conducted under the direction of senior faculty mentors.
Program Design & Requirements
The aim of this program is to build a supportive, invigorating training environment for the next generation of pulmonologists. In addition to funded research time in the lab of one of our mentors, we strive to build a cohesive pulmonary research community at Stanford. This is accomplished via mentorship from T32 leadership, formation of an advisory committee to give guidance and feedback on progress, and monthly research seminars. Trainees select a primary focus from one of the following research areas: Vascular Disease, Stem Cells & Lung Development, Genetics & Genomics, Lung Injury & Repair, Lung Microbiome, Lung Cancer, Outcomes Research, Lung Immunology and Imaging.
MD and MD/PhD applicants must have completed their clinical training prior to applying for T32 funding (1 year for pediatric pulmonary fellows, and 18 months for adult PCCM)
PhD applicants must be pursuing a post-doctoral fellowship in the lab of a Stanford mentor doing research relevant to pulmonary medicine.
**Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents
