Cardiovascular Research Training Program

Cardiovascular Research Training Program

The Cardiovascular Research Training Program (CRTP) at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center is funded by a T32 grant from the NIH National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI). The goal of the CRTP is to provide exceptional pre- and post-doctoral trainees a broad, multidisciplinary background in cardiovascular and pulmonary research with integration between basic and clinical sciences.

The CRTP partners with the interdisciplinary Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program at the HSC.  This non-departmental program provides training for PhD students in biomedical sciences in the first year followed by in-depth training in the chosen discipline in subsequent years.  A training program with a concentration in cardiovascular physiology is available for all predoctoral CRTP trainees in the BSGP.

The CRTP T32 provides an NIH level stipend, and allowances for tuition and fees, health insurance, training-related expenses, and travel to scientific meetings. Appointments are two to three years for predoctoral students and two years for postdoctoral trainees, with subsequent support provided by individual training fellowships or mentored career awards. Applications are restricted to U.S. citizens or permanent residents.

For more information and program application instructions, please contact the CRTP Program Director, Dr. Thomas Resta.
