Benchmark Capital Fellowship in Congenital Cardiovascular Bioengineering

About the Fellowship

The Benchmark Capital Fellowship in Congenital Cardiovascular Bioengineering is for fellows at both the pre-doctoral and post-doctoral levels. The Benchmark Fellow is part of the research program in cardiovascular biomechanics which focuses on congenital cardiovascular abnormalities with specific attention paid to vascular modeling. 

The engineering fellows participate in clinical and medical research conferences in addition to formal coursework in the School of Engineering and School of Medicine at Stanford University. Research supervision will be provided jointly by Engineering and Medical School faculty. Applicants will have, in general, a background in mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, or a closely related field. Pre-doctoral fellows will receive support for the duration of the doctoral training, contingent on sufficient academic progress. They will be required to apply for, but not be required to obtain grant support. Post-doctoral fellows will be funded for one to two years and will then be expected to obtain grant funding for salary and project support.

CAP Profile

Past Benchmark Bioengineering Fellows

The Vera Moulton Wall Center is proud of its fellowship alumni. Many have gone on to assume academic posts at academic institutions become leaders in the field.

About the Center

The Wall Center seeks to enhance the lives of patients with pulmonary vascular disease by providing the highest level of clinical care, providing advanced training opportunities for physicians and other health care providers, and participating in clinical and bench-top research in pulmonary vascular disease.
