An NIH sponsored multidisciplinary training program geared toward the development of the next generation of pulmonary investigators focused on the molecular physiology of the lung and the functional application of this knowledge to human lung diseases. This training program offers M.D. and M.D./Ph.D. fellows additional year(s) of protected research in addition to the 18 months provided during their core fellowship years.
The main objective of our training program is to provide a structured, intensive research experience and multidisciplinary mentoring that fosters the development of skills needed to pursue a successful career in investigative pulmonary sciences. Leveraging world-renowned mentors in COPD, interstitial lung disease, acute lung injury, sepsis, and respiratory infections, our training program is designed to help our fellows become independent investigators in Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine.
