Upcoming Research Opportunities

University of Rochester Center for Medical Technology and Innovation (CMTI)

The program intends to directly affect improvement in patient care and outcomes while promoting a unique education in both clinical cardiovascular care and bioengineering design. This one-year program culminates in a M.S. Degree in Biomedical Engineering.  All interested participants are required to have an undergraduate degree in any engineering discipline.  

New York University Langone Hospital – Brooklyn

Opportunity for US or Canadian medical student or general surgery resident. The program offers multiple projects involving arterial, venous, arteriovenous access, carotid, aneurysm disease, clinical projects and basic science.

William H. Pearce, MD, Vascular Surgery Student Research Award

Applications are due by April 15th
The Division of Vascular Surgery at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is soliciting applications for a 12-month mentored research experience for undergraduate and medical students to perform clinical or basic science research. This award is a one-year commitment of full-time research (35-40 hours per week).

University of Wisconsin-Madison

This program offers a two-year research opportunity including laboratory training in basic, translational, or clinical outcomes research in vascular disease. The training program comprises over 20 MD and/or PhD faculty from the University of Wisconsin and emphasizes multidisciplinary studies in vascular biology, drug delivery, and outcomes and health services research. 

University of Pittsburgh

The grant supports trainees interested in basic science research or clinical and translational research in cardiovascular disease under the supervision of leaders in the study of vascular biology, hemostasis, and nitric oxide biology, as well as in clinical and translational research. Trainees will acquire the investigational tools and experience that will serve as the groundwork for an academic career in either basic or clinical vascular research.

University of Michigan

The Michigan Medicine Section of Vascular Surgery, announces the availability of a two-year training position for postdoctoral candidates who are MDs in Vascular Biology through a NIH T32 Training Grant "Vascular Surgery: Research Training in Vascular Biology."

Stanford Cardiovascular Institute – Stanford University

Deadline for applications: April 1, 2022, 11:59pm PST

Stanford Cardiovascular Institute (CVI) offers postdoctoral training fellowships for MDs and PhDs in vascular disease research. The NIH-funded T32 program "Mechanisms and Innovation in Vascular Disease" balances rigorous research training with directed educational curricula and career-development opportunities with the goal of producing independent researchers. The program emphasizes career development, publications, oral presentations, and grant submissions as the means of achieving this goal.

Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

The NIH-funded Vascular Surgery Scientist Training Program at Northwestern University is a two-year mentored research training program designed for surgical residents (MD/DO) in general, cardiac, and vascular surgery interested in vascular biology or vascular biomedical engineering careers. 

Medical University of South Carolina

The Cardiovascular Research Laboratory at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) represents a collaboration among basic and translational scientists in Vascular Surgery, Cardiothoracic Surgery, and Cardiology. For those interested in Vascular Surgery, this team science approach supports complex investigations into the cell biology and pathophysiology of hypertension, abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), and thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA).

Harvard-Longwood Research Training in Vascular Surgery

This training program, the Harvard-Longwood Research Training in Vascular Surgery program, currently in its 26th year is designed to provide two years of intense basic and outcomes research training in vascular surgery for academic clinicians.
