Your research education begins with comprehensive training in biostatistics, lab research methodology, clinical research methodology, study design, grant preparation, and preparation of protocols for the institutional review board (IRB). These areas are covered during the first year of your fellowship.
In subsequent years, you’ll have access to our world-class laboratories, equipment, and resources, along with guidance from research professionals located on campus.
You’ll be encouraged to tailor the program’s research component to your interests and professional career plan. This may include laboratory research in our NIH-funded Lung Center, or clinical research with application for funding from both institutional and outside sources. While research funding is encouraged and supported, it is not a requirement to maintain the fellowship position during any year.
