Cardiovascular diseases account for 1 out of every 3 deaths in the United States. The prevalence of risks for cardiovascular disease -- such as hypertension, smoking, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, obesity -- remain high. Preventive Cardiology is a discipline concerned with the assessment and reduction in risks for cardiovascular disease. There is a continuing need for investigators with knowledge and expertise in this field. The University of Rochester has a long history of training scientists in the discipline of Preventive Cardiology, with our alumni contributing to cardiovascular research and assuming leadership positions at academic medical centers. The main objective of our T32 Research Training in Preventive Cardiology program is to provide a unique environment for the training of future scientists in Preventive Cardiology. Our outstanding faculty, resources, and infrastructure combine to form a multidisciplinary program which explores Preventive Cardiology from a range of complementary approaches. Our Preventive Cardiology Training Clusters include: Vascular Biology, Epidemiology, Behavioral Sciences, Clinical Trials, and Health Services. Our faculty offer individualized mentored research opportunities to 4 predoctoral students and 6 postdoctoral fellows each year. We fill these training positions with highly motivated students selected from a diverse set of applicants.
