Basic Sciences Opportunities
The CVRC offers training opportunities, for postdoctoral fellows and PhD graduate programs, which work in conjunction with a number of degree-granting departments at the University of Virginia, including
- Biomedical Engineering
- Cell Biology
- Molecular Physiology and Biological Physics
Separate application should be made to the graduate director of the desired degree program. Upon acceptance to a degree-granting department, the student can be nominated for the Vascular Biology Training Program by his or her faculty mentor.
Graduate students training in cardiovascular research can be supported in PhD studies in one of these disciplines while simultaneously completing a program of education in vascular biology and cardiovascular research. By combining the structure of departmental degree requirements with a broad range of laboratory experiences, investigator expertise, and technical resources available at the University of Virginia, the student is offered an ideal environment for scientific study.
