T32 Training Program for Institutions That Promote Diversity (T32) (Postdoctoral Individuals)
This program provides training to postdoctoral individuals enrolled at non-research intensive institutions with an institutional mission focused on serving minority and other health disparity populations not well represented in scientific research, or institutions that have been identified by federal legislation as having an institutional mission focused on these populations, with the potential to develop meritorious research training programs in cardiovascular, pulmonary, or hematologic diseases, and sleep disorders. These individuals should be in the developmental stages of their career.
The institution that promotes diversity may choose to identify and collaborate with a research center (medical school or comparable institution) that has strong, well-established cardiovascular, pulmonary, hematologic, or sleep disorders research and research training programs. The research center opens its facilities to the postdoctoral individual and provides a mentor to work with the individual's adviser at the institution.
At the time of appointment, individuals must have a doctoral or equivalent degree in a biomedical or behavioral science. A strong career interest in cardiovascular, pulmonary, hematologic, or sleep disorders research must be evident. They must be U.S. citizens, noncitizen nationals, or legal permanent residents of the U.S.
