The National Research Service Award (NRSA) is one of many training programs sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). This program enables research institutions to support pre- and post-doctoral training in areas of particular interest to the Institute and to prepare individuals for careers in biomedical and behavioral research. The cardiovascular epidemiology and biostatistics research training programs offer opportunities in the fields of epidemiology of cardiovascular diseases and statistical analysis.

Trainees are selected through review procedures established by the program director at the grantee institution. Students are required to pursue their research training full-time and must be U.S. citizens, noncitizen nationals or legal permanent residents of the United States. Persons on temporary or student visas are not eligible.

At the time of appointment, trainees must have received a baccalaureate degree and must be training at the post-baccalauareate level in a program leading to a Ph.D., Sc.D. or equivalent degree. Students who wish to interrupt their medical, dental, or other professional school studies to engage in full-time research training before completing their professional degrees are also eligible. These awards do not support study leading to the M.D., D.D.S. or other similar professional degrees, nor do they support residency training.

Attention is given to recruiting individuals from minority groups that are under-represented nationally in the biomedical sciences (African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Alaskan Natives, and Pacific Islanders).

Brief descriptions of the cardiovascular epidemiology and biostatistics programs supported by the NHLBI NRSA Program are available at this site. A list of Institutional Program Directors who may be contacted for further information about the Program is also included.
